We recently here) have high potential of appointing new agencies within six-to-12 months. So, look for upcoming agency shifts at these companies, as well.
Alaska Airlines (Seattle)
New Agency: IPG's Initiative, LA
Scope of Work: Media planning and buying (AdReady, a division of CPXi, is still involved with digital placements)
Incumbent: Wongdoody had been on creative and media AOR since 1997, according to The List.
Additional Insight: Alaska Airlines, No. 297 in the
Carlson Hotels (Minnetonka, MN)
New Agency: ccenture, Chicago.
Scope of Work: Digital planning and buying.
Additional Insight: Therefore, with a new media shop on board you should start engaging new decision makers on the account. Initially, focus on Raddison since its top buying periods are Q4 and Q1. Interestingly, Radisson Blu, which has many hotels outside the US, has maintained a much higher US display presence this year compared to 2014. Then, move to Country Inns & Suites, which historically runs most of its ads in the second half of the year. Management should be especially receptive to Country Inns pitches since a new campaign is slated for next year by new AOR
Gaia (Louisville, CO)
New Agency: Cactus, Denver
Scope of Work: Global AOR
Incumbent: Marketing was in-house.
Additional Insight: The agency will handle global integrated strategy, creative and media duties amid the company's brand repositioning. Cactus will also help the new brand launch a new website and national promotions. The first work from the agency is a video helping Gaia launch its new app on Apple TV.
Hydrapak (Oakland, CA)
New Agency: Buffalo Brand Invigoration Group
Scope of Work: PR AOR
Additional Insight: The agency will lead efforts to increase Hydrapak awareness, affinity and sales in the US. Hydrapak's focus categories include the outdoor, mountain biking, running, winter sports, tactical and active-lifestyle market. It serves these markets through its own branded products and partnerships with original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). Sellers who focus on sports and active lifestyle properties should look for revenue opportunities within each of these segments. According to CEO Matt Lyon, Buffalo is ideally positioned to “help shape and share [Hydrapak's] story” and the rise is awareness they will create will support the company's retailer relationships, add value to OEM partners and boost consumer purchases.
Opportunity: Reportedly beginning the search for a new creative AOR after IPG's McCann reportedly resigned the account after almost two-and-a-half years.
Additional Insight: The timing is interesting because Jose Cuervo marketing veteran Lander Otegui was appointed Proximo's global brand director at the start of the year and CMO Scott Green just joined Proximo only about three months ago. So, with new DMs on board and a review imminent, agencies with the scope to handle Jose Cuervo should reach out immediately. Focus your pitch on Cuervo Silver since it's been the marketing focus lately and Proximo historically tends to focus more on Silver tequila (check out 1800 marketing). Note that Havas agencies may have an inside track since
Neiman Marcus (Dallas)
New Agency: Centro
Scope of Work: Display
Incumbent: iProspect, which still handles search
Additional Insight: The shift comes as Neiman Marcus makes “significant ongoing investments” to support paid search and mobile initiatives (research
Seventh Generation (Burlington, VT)
New Agency: MDC’s 72andSunny, New York
Scope of Work: Creative AOR – Home and personal care products
Incumbent: MDC sibling The Media Kitchen
Additional Insight: The MDC agency already launched its first work, a
SLS Las Vegas (Las Vegas, NV)
New Agency: Las Vegas-based SK+G
Scope of Work: AOR
Additional Insight: The agency was hired to relaunch the brand, which only just debuted in summer 2014 but has
Spalding (Bowling Green, KY)
New Agency: Walton Isaacson
Scope of Work: Creative AOR
Incumbent: Spalding has not had an AOR for some time, but WinStanley has been creating ads on a per-project basis for a few years.
Additional Insight: The agency's work for Spalding will feature both professional and amateur athletes, including Damian Lillard (Trail Blazers) and DeMar DeRozan (Raptors). The first work from WI is expected to debut in February 2016, so sellers should reach out now to secure ad dollars. According to a press release, Spalding wants to create a “global messaging platform” and run more extensive campaigns in the future.
Stanley Steemer (Dublin, OH)
New Agency: Columbus, Ohio-based Mindstream Interactive,
Scope of Work: Media planning and buying
Additional Insight: As we reported earlier this month (more info below), the transition just began but it appears that staff have already transitioned. So, start engaging in-house and Mindstream decision makers now to secure some of Stanley Steemer's $35 million annual ad budget. Q2 and Q3 are the company's top buying periods, so planning should be underway shortly. Look for female household decision maker focused direct response to continue being the focus of upcoming campaigns.
