Opportunity: No. 237 on the here). The firm will be responsible for creative across all of NBTY’s brands. According to CMO Andre Branch, the decision to consolidate agency relationships is part of a larger effort to “build stronger relationships with key strategic partners” and “really leverage their expertise.” Branch is hoping to parlay this centralization of strategy to create “deeper, more engaging relationships” with consumers. 

NBTY is the leading company in the saturated $11 billion vitamin industry, but its brands still get lost in the clutter. So, digital, TV and social media campaigns – both for the company and its individual brands – should deploy in the near future.  Pay attention to the media spend breakdown for NBTY’s brands below, as marketing investments are all over the board. While some brands are increasing spend and programmatic placements, other brands are backing down.
