The agency will be responsible for managing end-to-end media planning and buying for Kering across 42 markets.
Dentsu company iProspect has announced it has been named global media partner for all Kering brands.
As the global agency of record, iProspect will be responsible for managing all end-to-end media planning and buying, integrated across brand and performance. iProspect will operate as a media partner across all 42 markets where Kering has a media presence, and will gradually take charge over Q1 2022. Kering Group's portfolio of luxury brands includes Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent, and Balenciaga.
The announcement follows a unique four-month agency review based on innovation principles and a fast-tracked process. Kering sought agility and nimbleness within the response to a brief to select its future partner. The review kicked off in July, with incumbent Zenith defending the business.
In reference to the pitch and subsequent selection, Kering appreciated “the iProspect team’s digital and data-driven strategic vision and capabilities, its drive for innovation and creativity, along with its constant agile mindset. The Group looks forward to working with iProspect within the fully integrated Dentsu network as its unique partner, empowering the combination of a global vision and strong local expertise,” said a statement.
iProspect Global Brand President Amanda Morrissey said, “Enhancing our strong partnership with Kering is an amazing win for iProspect, one which propels our existing relationship onto a global stage. As the end-to-end agency, with the full scope of brand & performance media, our passionate team looks forward to working with one of the most innovative, digital-first, and data-driven luxury brands in the world.”
The win builds on a year where Dentsu re-launched iProspect as a new, future-focused, end-to-end global media agency.
