In today’s world, our markets are increasingly more fragmented, and our consumers more demanding. We need to transform our Marketing to collectively improve our operational effectiveness, while we engage our consumers more deeply with the development of quicker and more impactful innovation, the activation of sharper digital plans, and the creation of breakthrough and award-winning brand and product storytelling.
This requires a strong consumer centric approach, with a deeper knowledge of local consumer insights and cultural trends, so our communications can resonate more deeply. For this reason, two new Brand Company Functions are being created, located in “Drive markets” (markets representative of a strategic consumer archetype for the brand), to ensure the development of exceptional brand and product communications: “Creative Content Managers” (content development) and “Market Activation Managers” (markets coordination and broadcast).
Collect brand strategy and guidelines for creative content development from central Chivas Team in Chivas Brothers Gather requirements from Chivas Brothers and PR Japan regarding creative content needs and local consumer insights Develop local creative assets based on global brand strategy and global big idea / CEP (Consumer Engagement Platform). Those assets can include:
Share creative brief guidelines with local marketing teams for other creative assets (e.g.: BTL, L3F) Manage relationship with creative agencies and partners (incl. cost control): global agency and/or its local affiliate, local specialist agencies, local contact of global partner or local partners, etc. Liaise back with Chivas Team in Chivas Brothers to ensure developments are on-brand and on-strategy Share content created with local market for broadcast Ensure all content created abides by the Responsible Marketing guidelines and local legal practices.

Created in 1975 by the merger of Ricard and Pernod, the Group has developed through organic growth and acquisitions: Seagram (2001), Allied Domecq (2005) and Vin&Sprit (2008). Pernod Ricard, which owns 16 of the Top 100 Spirits Brands, holds one of the most prestigious and comprehensive brand portfolios in the industry, including: Absolut Vodka, Ricard pastis, Ballantine’s, Chivas Regal, Royal Salute, and The Glenlivet Scotch whiskies, Jameson Irish whiskey, Martell cognac, Havana Club rum, Beefeater gin, Malibu liqueur, Mumm and Perrier-Jouët champagnes, as well Jacob’s Creek, Brancott Estate, Campo Viejo, and Kenwood wines.
