Coca-Cola appoints WWP as global marketing network partner


The Coca-Cola Company has named WPP as its global marketing partner.

WPP will be responsible for driving long-term growth for the entire company’s portfolio of brands across more than 200 countries.

Coca-Cola’s new, integrated agency model is part of an “aggressive agenda” to transform and modernise marketing and innovation, it revealed.

“Consumers respond to an entire experience – they don’t separate the message from the medium – and that’s why we’ve designed an agency model to be truly consumer-centric and silo-free,” The Coca-Cola Company global chief marketing officer Manolo Arroyo said.

“This model is about seamless integration of the power of big, bold ideas and creativity within experiences, amplified by media and data. It will enable us to create end-to-end experiences that are grounded in data-rich insights and optimised real-time, at scale, as we learn from consumers.”

“This partnership, integrating our capabilities across content, media, data, production and technology, operating locally and globally, will complement The Coca-Cola Company’s globally networked organisation.”
