“ALL NEW YORK STAFF
AETNA

Last year Aetna appointed us as AOR for all their B2B communications. They have now decided to give us the consumer brand business. This is a terrific win and we owe it mainly to the Aetna team who has been working tirelessly to, first, onboard a very complex business and then, quickly turn it into a well oiled machine. A couple of weeks ago they launched Aetna’s first corporate campaign, “Our Healthy,” which was written up in the New York Times. The team’s work was the main reason Aetna awarded us the consumer brand work. A huge congratulations to Rebecca Barnard, Ben Levine, David Korchin, Stephanie Wai and the rest of the team for making this happen.

With the Affordable Care Act now in effect and the growing importance of public and private health exchanges, the health insurance industry is rapidly transforming from a pure B2B business to one that is primarily consumer driven. Consumer brand advertising, therefore, has become crucially important for Aetna and we couldn’t be more excited to be their main agency partner in this transformation. “
