Car rental company Hertz has appointed WPP’s MEC as its new media agency of record in the US, Canada and Latin America.
The win follows a “media pitch which consolidates media investment, planning, strategy, digital, SEM, SEO, mobile, analytics and insight, and affiliate marketing with one agency,” according to MEC.
MEC will replace incumbent agency Florida-based FKQ Advertising for media planning and buying duties.
“We’ve determined that MEC is the right media planning and buying partner for Hertz Global and our portfolio of brands. We look forward to tapping their strategic planning, creativity and best-in-class analytics and insights capabilities in the digital space as we go to market in support of our Hertz, Dollar and Thrifty brands,” said Hertz’s EVP and chief marketing officer Matt Jauchius on the appointment.
In 2015, the company reported total advertising costs of US$170 million.
