Miller Cuts Ties with Saatchi & Saatchi NY

millercoorsMillerCoors is cutting their ties with Saatchi & Saatchi New York, lead agency on Miller Lite since early 2012, Ad Age reports. Saatchi & Saatchi New York was also lead agency on the newly launched Miller Fortune, an extension of the Miller brand with higher alcohol content. Earlier this year MillerCoors moved a significant portion of the Miller Lite account to a collection of WPP agencies, who played a major role in Miller Lite’s latest campaign. The move also follows a long-term sales decline for the brand.

“We appreciate the efforts and professionalism from [Saatchi & Saatchi New York CEO] Brent Smart and his team behind our brands,” Pete Marino, MillerCoors VP-communications, said in a statement to Ad Age. “Any immediate needs for Miller Lite and Miller Fortune will be handled by other roster agencies, though we have a lot of current work to draw from that we recently debuted at our sales and marketing conference. We have no timetable for the longer term, and will take our time making decisions that strategically make sense for both brands.”
