Saatchi & Saatchi will work with Chorus across the board on their marketing communications, driving strategy and creative as well as digital and supporting campaign PR. Saatchi & Saatchi's new creative will begin appearing in market from May onwards.
Says Chorus Head of Marketing Karren Harker: "The team demonstrated a clear understanding of our role in the market. Their thinking was coherent, fresh and aligned with the Chorus brand. It showed great potential and we're looking forward to working together."
Says Managing Director of Saatchi & Saatchi Paul Wilson: "Chorus is an amazing, purpose driven organisation with people who are genuinely passionate about bringing New Zealand better broadband. We're excited to be able to help them share this with the country."
