Worked with high profile brands that include Kraft Foods, Procter and Gamble, Quaker and Pfizer. Helped position brands for success and develop ideas to take brands to the next level of growth within the market. Specifics include positioning high profile brands like Country Time Lemonade, identifying new energy drink products for Quaker, positioning and advertising the Crest brand in the Italian market, and developing advertising for brands like Listerine and Trident gum in Canada.
Worked with General Motors with a specific focus on Cadillac. Cadillac was at a point in its evolution as a brand where it had got stuck in the past and as a result, lost its appeal to consumers who were reaching the pinnacle of their careers in their forties and fifties. These consumers were turning away from Cadillac in favor of Mercedes and BMW, as brands that were seen as more contemporary and prestigious. Cadillac needed to re-position and re-design itself as a brand that could compete in terms of design and technology with the European imports.
