Winter to Lead Key Client Partnership
The Mars Agency has strengthened its world-class client leadership ranks with the appointment of industry veteran Wendy Winter as SVP.
A commerce marketing veteran with more than 15 years of experience building brands across the CPG, retail and foodservice industries, Winter will take the reins at one of The Mars Agency’s longest tenured clients.
“We’re extremely proud of the strategic partnerships we’ve been able to develop with many of our clients,” says Rob Rivenburgh, The Mars Agency’s Global CEO. “With Wendy, we’ve found the ideal person to continue nurturing and growing one of our longest and strongest relationships.”
Winter joins Mars from Omnicom’s The Integer Group, where she has spent the vast majority of her career, driving success for numerous blue chip companies including Procter & Gamble, Bissell, Red Robin, Bimbo Bakeries, Ferrero and Giant Eagle.
Along with her brand-focused work, Winter has also led customer teams that built effective partnerships with PetSmart, Costco, Albertsons, Dollar General and Amazon, among other retailers.
“Wendy has tremendous experience and success working with brands across CPG, retail and casual dining,” says Steve DeVore, The Mars Agency’s Chief Client Officer. “She also has a proven track record of people development, which makes her perfectly suited to help us deliver the Mars Client Experience.”
A unique approach to account management, the Mars Client Experience is a structured formula for establishing strategic partnerships with clients by instilling the characteristics of great client leadership in all team members through individualized training and growth measurement.
Winter will oversee all aspects of the client relationship and report to DeVore.
