DDB North America announced that Orkin has selected DDB Chicago as its strategic business and creative agency of record, following a competitive review.
The partnership with Orkin is the latest addition to the agency’s roster of iconic household name brands, which includes Molson Coors, McDonald’s, Mars, Jiffy Lube, and State Farm, among others.
This is the first win for DDB Chicago following an agency transformation and number of new hires under the leadership of CEO Andrea Diquez, including CCO Rodrigo Jatene, CSO Milo Chao and Head of Business Leadership Sandra Alfaro.
DDB Chicago CEO Andrea Diquez said, “I am so happy to be adding Orkin to the portfolio, and I couldn’t be prouder of the entire team. It has truly been a collaborative effort from the very beginning. Our foundation is in place, and we are well on our way to delivering on our goals as an agency, with some incredible clients.”
DDB Chicago’s remit is to deliver breakthrough creative and business solutions fuelled by data and deep insights, further solidifying Orkin as America’s first name in pest control and driving memorability for the brand.
Orkin Vice President of Marketing Cam Glover said, “Andrea and the team at DDB Chicago truly understood the Orkin brand and our goals. Their great thinking, creative ideas and collaborative nature stood out from the rest. I am looking forward to building upon our already strong relationship.”
