HONG KONG: Optimum Media Direction(浩腾媒体)has won the US$25 million Richemont(历峰集团) Asia-Pacific media agency of record assignment following a shoot-out against Carat, Motivator, Starcom and Initiative. 

The luxury goods giant consolidated the account to boost buying efficiencies in an effort to offset the economic slump. 

Richemont – with brands such as Baume & Mercier, Cartier, Dunhill, Lancel, Mont Blanc, Piaget and Shanghai Tang – previously used a roster of agencies to service the account, including Carat, Motivator and Starcom. OMD, however, was not on its roster prior to the pitch. 

The current roster of creative agencies, including M&C Saatchi and Euro RSCG, remains unchanged. 

The review to consolidate the account – the biggest shift in Hong Kong this year – consisted of a review process that spanned several rounds of presentations. 

Richemont's worldwide media director, Philippe Nettre, said: "Our objective is to optimise our media effectiveness at the ground and brand level, keeping the individual characteristics that make each of our brands unique. 

"We chose OMD because of its strong team, proprietary systems, luxury goods experience and overall enthusiasm." 

OMD regional chief executive, Mike Cooper, said it won through what he called "sheer enthusiasm" and "recommendations on new solutions, how to handle the business, the types of resources which would be allocated and means to enhance the efficiency of the buying process". He said OMD had to demonstrate a consolidation strategy while meeting the specific needs of each brand under the control of Richemont. 

Richemont distributes its products across the region including in Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Korea and Australia. However, the bulk of its adspend is in Hong Kong and, increasingly, China.
