It’s an exciting time for Mercedes-Benz Vans in this market”.
Nick Cummins, creative partner at The Royals, “The whole agency is thrilled to be appointed by the team at Mercedes-Benz Vans. We’ve wanted an automotive brand since we started our business and couldn’t ask for a better badge.
“The Vans team are keen to take a different approach with marketing to drive sales, so that’s a really great opportunity for us”.
The Royals responsibilities lie with marketing the Mercedes-Benz Vans range that covers Vito, Sprinter and the Valente, as well as future products for the division.
