Amazon's top agency liaison departs for Instacart
by Garett Sloane on September 13, 2019 at 7:22 pm
Seth Dallaire, one of Amazon’s most prominent ad executives, is leaving the company for a new chief revenue role at e-commerce startup Instacart. On Friday, Instacart announced the appointment of Dallaire, setting the stage for his departure from Amazon, where he had been instrumental in establishing the company’s growing ad business. As head of global advertising sales at Amazon, Dallaire was often the main point of contact with the agency world. “It’s definitely a loss for them, the way the loss of a strong leader is for any company,” says Will Margaritis, senior VP of e-commerce at Sellwin Consulting, an Amazon-focused agency within Dentsu-Aegis Network. “But Amazon is a machine. It’s nothing if not full of strong leaders, and capable of pulling in strong leaders from other companies. I think his team, personally, will greatly miss him, and those of us that dealt with him are going to be bummed.” Instacart is an emerging player in online shopping, working with retailers to provide online ordering and delivery services. “Dallaire will oversee Instacart’s growing brand marketing partnerships business,” Instacart stated in its announcement on Friday. Amazon and Instacart were not immediately available for comment. Over the past two years, Amazon has made a big investment in agency relations, developing the technology needed to automate ad campaigns, similar to Google and Facebook’s platforms. Last year, Amazon overtook Microsoft and Verizon to become the No. 3 ad business in the U.S. Amazon’s U.S. ad revenue is expected to top $11 billion in 2019. Dallaire has worked with marketers to help them build ad practices that integrate with Amazon’s e-commerce site and ad network, which delivers ads to websites throughout the internet. Top ad agencies like Dentsu-Aegis Network and Omnicom have built new units and teams to specifically handle Amazon marketing for clients. Dallaire joined Amazon in 2012. He will start at Instacart in November, serving as its first chief revenue officer. His exit follows the departure last year of Amazon's U.S. sales head, Jeremi Gorman, who departed to become Snapchat’s chief business officer. &nbs

Matthew McConaughey drives through a purple cloud in his latest for Lincoln
by Sarah Kominek on September 13, 2019 at 7:00 pm
Matthew McConaughey is back with another eccentric Lincoln ad. The actor, who’s been appearing in quirky ads for the Ford-owned brand for five years, in a new spot emerges from a purple cloud driving the Aviator SUV. The campaign, called "Fresh Take," will start with takeovers on Twitter and YouTube. It will make its broadcast debut during the Notre Dame vs. New Mexico football game at 2:30 p.m. EDT on NBC. The TV ad by WPP’s Hudson Rouge was directed by award-winning director Johan Renck, whose credits include "Breaking Bad" and "The Walking Dead." It features McConaughey in a surreal setting surrounded by smoke with exotic colors. "The name refers to our fresh take on movement and highlights how different we are from our competitors," Eric Peterson, Lincoln marketing communications manager, said in a statement Friday. "We don't focus on such aggressive, over-the-top performance. When you're in a Lincoln Aviator, we want the whole experience to simply make you feel better." Lincoln used music performed by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra for the ad. Saturday also marks the start of the 2020 Aviator's "experiential" U.S. tour, which runs through November and will visit 11 cities, including Boston, Philadelphia, Atlanta, New York and Los Angeles. The new Aviator crossover offers two powertrains. The standard twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 engine delivers 400 hp and 415 pound-feet of torque. The Grand Touring hybrid powertrain delivers 494 hp combined and 630 pound-feet of torque combined. Sarah Kominek is a reporter for Automotive News. Ad Age contributed to this report.

McDonald’s picks Wieden & Kennedy New York as lead U.S. creative agency
by Jessica Wohl on September 13, 2019 at 6:00 pm
McDonald’s has chosen Wieden & Kennedy, New York as its lead creative agency in the U.S., delivering a blow to Omnicom Group’s DDB three years after it emerged the victor in the chain’s creative shootout. The move toward an independent creative agency is a major shift for the country's largest restaurant chain, which has for decades worked with shops that are part of large holding companies. It also suggests that a bespoke agency model, hailed as the wave of the future when DDB created one for McDonald’s three years ago, may not be the definitive answer for major marketers when it comes to creative partners. In August 2016, the Golden Arches named Omnicom Group the winner in a U.S. creative contest in which it fought against Publicis Groupe. Now We Are Unlimited, the Chicago-based agency that Omnicom’s DDB created to support McDonald’s, is taking a back seat to Wieden & Kennedy, New York. We Are Unlimited will continue to work on the brand with a focus on what McDonald’s is calling “operational excellence.” We Are Unlimited’s scope includes Happy Meals and other assignments where there’s a steady volume of work to churn out, such as digital marketing, customer relationship management and work on the mobile app. The move is a huge win for W&K. The U.S. is the Golden Arches’ biggest market with nearly 14,000 restaurants that bring in annual system-wide sales of more than $38 billion. Notably, McDonald's does not see a conflict with KFC, for which Wieden & Kennedy, Portland has done award-winning work including creating a rotating cast of Colonel Sanders characters. 'Getting the best work' In an interview, McDonald's U.S. Chief Marketing Officer Morgan Flatley said the Chicago-based restaurant chain spent time getting comfortable with the idea of working with an agency that works with another company in the fast-food industry. “At this point, it doesn’t concern us,” she said of W&K's relationship with KFC. “We wanted to make the decision around getting the best work that this business deserves.” McDonald’s also noted that the brands will be worked on from different offices, with different teams and IT safeguards will be put in place. McDonald’s says it selected Wieden & Kennedy, New York for its blend of strategic and creative work. “Creative excellence is a huge passion point of mine,” says Flatley, noting that the W&K team understood “the heart and the soul of this brand." The fast-feeder conducted the review internally and was seeking a more creative approach to help it build stronger connections with current customers and get those who don’t visit the restaurants to come in for the first time or return. The review began about nine months ago with three agencies under consideration: Wieden & Kennedy, New York along with two Omnicom shops: TBWA/Chiat/Day Los Angeles and Adam & Eve/DDB, Flatley said. McDonald’s narrowed the field in May to W&K and TBWA, and those agencies began working on “business-critical briefs for 2020,” as Flatley described the process. The decision was made this week after both agencies delivered their final presentations on Tuesday. TBWA has worked globally with McDonald’s for more than three decades and had recently expanded its relationship with the company in the U.S., including for work on its McCafé coffee. W&K will begin work on the brand in the next month to plan for 2020. McDonald’s will now have a tag-team approach. “The challenge is balancing both world-class creative and also how you put data, insights, and speed in the center of everything you do,” says Flatley. McDonald’s pointed to W&K's work for brands including Nike, Bud Light, Coca-Cola’s Sprite and Vitaminwater, and Delta. Winning streak This appointment marks another major brand win for W&K’s New York office. Once operating in the shadow of the agency’s Portland office, New York has added multiple blue-chip clients in recent years, including Bud Light and Ford, the latter of which came aboard late last year after the automaker demoted WPP’s GTB, a bespoke agency model that was relegated to lower-profile work. “We’re incredibly excited and honored to be part of the McDonald’s team at this critical juncture in their business transformation,” Neal Arthur, managing director of Wieden & Kennedy, New York, said in a statement provided by the client. “McDonald’s has created some of the most iconic branding, advertising and marketing initiatives the world has ever known, and we look forward to working across the company and agency network to continue this rich tradition.” We Are Unlimited, meanwhile, pointed to its continued relationship with the brand. "We remain a proud partner with McDonalds’s and are working closely across both the McDonald’s and We Are Unlimited teams to ensure we remain focused on our shared goals and priorities," the agency said in a statement. "It's been a privilege to work with McDonald's in the U.S., and we're proud to continue working with them in many markets around the world,” TBWA CEO Troy Ruhanen said in a statement. “We love the brand and wish them every success." McDonald’s has been on a roll under the leadership of CEO Steve Easterbrook, posting 10 consecutive quarters of U.S. same-store sales growth and 16 consecutive quarters of global same-store sales growth. In the recent second quarter, U.S. same-store sales shot up 5.7 percent, growing at a faster clip than rivals Burger King and Wendy’s. McDonald’s has been improving its menu with the addition of fresh beef Quarter Pounder burgers and updated McCafé coffee, is renovating thousands of restaurants and has gotten a sales boost from the addition of delivery. Still, its franchisees began organizing in a bigger way, in a group called the National Owners Association, pushing for more of a say in how the company operates. Flatley, who worked on brands including Gatorade before joining McDonald’s in May 2017, runs McDonald’s marketing in the U.S. Colin Mitchell, who was promoted to senior VP of global marketing in July, was also deeply involved in the domestic agency review. “Globally, we are trying to evolve our creative, like the rest of the customer experience,” Mitchell said in a statement. “This move allows us to push our vision for modern marketing in this very important market.” Still lovin' it Wieden & Kennedy, New York is expected to help McDonald’s U.S. communicate more consistently the optimistic tone of togetherness and community that the company tries to project globally, Flatley said. The “I’m lovin’ it” slogan, cooked up in 2003 by DDB’s Heye & Partner, of Germany, is sticking around. “You’ll see it and my expectation is it will start to have more meaning,” Flatley said. Other U.S. agency relationships remain intact, including a mix of multicultural agencies, co-op relationships with various creative agencies for work at the local level, and media agency OMD. We Are Unlimited was created in 2016 following an agency review and selection process led by Deborah Wahl, who was McDonald’s U.S. CMO at the time and then left the company in 2017. Omnicom won the McDonald’s account back then in a pitch led by Wendy Clark, who at that time was CEO of DDB North America and is now CEO of DDB Worldwide. We Are Unlimited officially began working on the account at the start of 2017. We Are Unlimited debuted years after the demise of Element 79, a Chicago-based Omnicom agency created in 2001 to focus on PepsiCo that later lost clients including PepsiCo’s Tropicana, Gatorade and Quaker, and was absorbed by DDB Chicago in 2012. McDonald’s is also beefing up its technology investments. On Sept. 10, it announced the plan to buy Apprente, a voice-based conversational technology company. Earlier this year, it invested in mobile app company Plexure and acquired Dynamic Yield, which is helping the chain make its digital billboards more personalized and more adaptable to changes such as the weather.&nbs
