NEW YORK Beiersdorf has appointed Carat as its new agency for media planning and buying services.
"We were extremely impressed by Carat's strategic vision and thorough understanding of our consumers' media mindset. Through insightful targeting of our consumers, Carat will help us maximize our media investment and increase efficiencies. The full integration of our media planning efforts will build larger, even more breakthrough programs," stated Nicolas Maurer, Beiersdorf VP marketing.
The appointment follows a four-month review process that select agencies, including incumbent OMD, took part in.
