Brown-Forman has launched a review of creative agencies of record across most of its global brand portfolio, the company has confirmed.
That includes Jack Daniel’s, currently serviced by Havas’ Arnold Worldwide.
Mark McCallum, chief brands officer at Brown-Forman, said: “I believe we are at a pivotal moment in time as we seek to deliver the next generation of growth for our brands.”
Although not confirmed, people with knowledge of the review say there are around 100 agencies fighting to retain business as Brown-Forman grapples with a major internal restructure.
AAR Partners in New York City is managing the review. It referred comment to Brown-Forman.
