Publicis Groupe Malaysia Bags 100PLUS Creative and Social

Publicis Groupe Malaysia emerge as winners of the 100PLUS creative and social agency pitch in Malaysia, following a four-way pitch. The Groupe has maintained its position as creative partners while extending support as the social agency of record.

Neil Hudspeth, CEO – Publicis Groupe Malaysia, said, “Firstly, I’m delighted with the extension and expansion of our valued partnership with F&N and 100PLUS, and equally grateful for the continued trust and passion shown by our clients. Our continued collaboration is a testament to our joint belief in great work that delivers impactful business building solutions. This extension and appointment is another hugely valued milestone for us and we’re committed to build upon the existing relationship and drive 100PLUS forward to win in this platform world.”

The 1-month long pitch process saw winning strategy, creative and integrated ideas which covered the enhancement of the consumer journey, elevating consumer brand experiences, and building product category relevance for each 100PLUS beverage and their audiences.

Iska Hashim, Executive Creative Director – Leo Burnett, said, “We’ve had a great relationship with the 100PLUS team for 2 years, weathering the challenges of the pandemic. And we’re honoured to continue to serve as the creative agency of record, and now social agency of record, to help grow the business even further.”

The agency review is an integral part of 100PLUS’s renewed approach, which demanded a transformation of its marketing strategy. Publicis Groupe Malaysia won the account based on its winning ideas, use of technology and disruptive mindset to capture the hearts and minds of all Malaysians.
