We’re getting handpicked creative talent from Draftfcb and The House networks at both the global and local market level. This model will provide us with the efficiency and consistency we need as a global brand as well as the means to  drive relevance around the world by accessing top-notch local talent when we need it. In doing so, we’ll strive to reach passionate new fans in every market in which we operate.”
