Female Media Opps: McCormick & Co increasing brand marketing investments (Score 43)


During the Q1 earnings call, McCormick CEO Lawrence Kurzius mentioned that the company will continue to increase its brand marketing spend. While modest increases were made during Q1, Kurzius said that McC expects an greater increase in marketing spend in Q2 (March to May). "We have an expectation about strong growth and we're leaning into that growth with our spending and I think we'll continue to do so as we go through the year, " said Kurzius.

Sellers, remember that McC consolidated digital media with media AOR shift two-thirds of its marketing to digital media (from traditional). Last year's media spend was up $15 million over 2015, so look for these increases to remain in place for 2017. Look specifically for increases around Zatarain's, Kitchen Basics and Gourmet Garden products. McC is currently targeting those seeking recipes, particularly millennial consumers.

IPG sibling Sawtooth appears to still have traditional creative and has had it since 1997. This is well past average AOR tenure (2.5-3 years), making it even more vulnerable for change.
