TBWA to lead communication for Datsun’s return

Nissan Motor Company has appointed TBWA Worldwide as the global marketing agency for Datsun. This appointment follows the announcement on the return of Datsun by Nissan Motor Company’s CEO, Carlos Ghosn, in March 2012. This appointment follows a competitive pitch, managed directly by Nissan.

Global creative and strategic direction will be led by a combination of resources from TBWA\Hakuhodo and TBWA\London, supported by individual markets. The agency was appointed on the strength of the innovative ‘Riser’ brand platform developed for Datsun.

Using this platform, TBWA will be responsible for developing the Datsun communications strategy, its global launch and local market activation.

Datsun is due to launch in 2014, with initial focus on India, Russia and Indonesia, providing local products under a global brand to the fast-expanding young middle class in high-growth markets. Local TBWA offices will be responsible for delivering campaigns in their home countries – TBWA\Moscow, TBWA\Mumbai, and TBWA and Hakuhodo Jakarta.

Speaking on the win, Tom Carroll, President & CEO, TBWA Worldwide said, “We are honoured and delighted to be leading the Datsun launch. We are mobilising our key rising markets’ expertise and resources around the world to ensure that we have our very best people working on Datsun.”

Vincent Cobee, Corporate Vice President, Datsun Business Unit commented, “We are bringing the Datsun brand back to provide a new experience to up-and-coming customers in high-growth markets. We are pleased to have TBWA Worldwide join us for the successful launch of this great brand.”

The OOH sector is among the fastest growing, globally. Brands and marketers have realized its potential and impact and begun to craft medium-specific adverts. Self-regulation is not only necessary but also essential to growth of the sector. The industry needs to exercise a certain level of this self-restraint to prove its commitment to maintaining the best standards in advertising.
