Initiative has been engaged to manage all aspects of Simplot’s investments across all media.

“In the final presentations we were most impressed with the Initiative team, the depth of their strategic thinking and the integration of their digital capabilities,” said Fiona Allen, Simplot chief marketing and digital officer. “We were looking for truly innovative, highly-challenging media thinking and delivery and the Initiative team demonstrated why they would be our ideal media partner into the future.”

Simplot initiated its media review following the cessation of business by former agency Huckleberry and the merger of its business into Aegis. The pitch process was managed by Trinity P3. Allen continued, “We’d like to thank the Vizeum team for taking great care of our business during the transitional period, they have demonstrated commitment and professionalism while managing the media needs for our brands.”
