Fisher & Paykel has appointed AFFINITY as its full-service strategic media and digital agency across the entire suite of products, with a spend of approximately $5 million.

Fisher & Paykel head of marketing, Richard Babekuhl said: “Fisher & Paykel is undergoing an exciting time of transformation as we close in on achieving our objective of the #1 premium appliance brand.
“We needed a proven performer in marketing effectiveness to unlock our full potential, particularly with an incredible pipeline of new products and industry-leading website to launch in the coming months.
“We know we’ve found that progressive, results-driven partner in AFFINITY, and we look forward to seeing similar results to the successful pilot with our total media investment.”
AFFINITY CEO, Luke Brown said: “From the get go, we knew we were like minded thinkers wanting to use the power of media intelligence to grow brand reputation whilst ensuring we improve the bottom line.”
Brown added: “It’s an absolute privilege to be able to help strengthen such an iconic brand in a demanding market place.
