Bayer obtains MediaCom as global media agency
Bayer appointed WPP’s MediaCom as a full-service global media agency following a competitive process. The branch network will help implement Bayer’s modernized marketing strategy, with industry-leading data and content integration as a key driver of business growth.
The agency will also support Bayer’s continued commitment to ‘Media For Good’, ensuring that both companies continue to develop their initiatives and leadership in I&D, sustainability and brand communications adequacy. . MediaCom will take full advantage of the WPP Choreographer to provide the expertise and knowledge required for Bayer to be the industry leader in the critical area of data-driven marketing.
MediaCom previously worked with Bayer in 65 markets, but this consolidation will add crucial markets such as Germany, China and Russia to its mandate and ensure further synergies for the two companies. Consolidating the global business for the first time will also provide better sharing of best practices, simpler ways of working, and improved consistency of approach, data and reporting.
