New Creative Director Rachel Abrams Taps Howie Mandel and P.Y. Lord to Launch "Let's Find Out"
TORONTO, Sept. 28, 2021 /CNW/ -- Jackman Reinvents, the world's leading reinvention company, announces the launch of the firm's latest work for Staples Canada. The bold new campaign—starring Howie Mandel and Pierre-Yves (P.Y.) Lord—underscores the reinvention firm's omnichannel approach to integrated communications. The campaign coincides with the announcement of Rachel Abrams as Group Creative Director.
Howie Mandel and P.Y. Lord tapped to Launch "Let's Find Out" -- Staples Canada's bold new campaign
Jackman's role as creative agency-of-record for Staples Canada grew out of a longstanding partnership, which began in 2017 with defining Staples' new position in the market, reinventing the customer value proposition, and shifting its brand identity from an office goods supplier to a partner who supports and embraces working and learning. This strategic shift shaped how Staples Canada reimagined all aspects of the customer experience.
"Our work with Staples Canada really captures what Jackman is about. We began by identifying the mindset of their core consumers and moved rapidly from insight to action. Adding the creative is the logical next step in our partnership," said Jackman President Sandra Duff.
Let's Find Out, the new Staples Canada campaign, centers on the curiosity that lives inside Staples Canada's customer base of life-long learners and achievers and highlights the brands readiness to help customers who are always looking to grow. In the new multi-platform 15 and 30-second spots, Canadian host and producer Howie Mandel and Canadian television personality Pierre-Yves (P.Y.) Lord play customer's doppelgangers who give voice to their curiosity. The spots encourage the customer to follow that curiosity and seek solutions available through Staples Canada.
The campaign was conceived by Rachel Abrams, Jackman's new Group Creative Director. "We're thrilled to have had Rachel Abrams here to bring life to this campaign. Rachel brings to Jackman extraordinary creative horsepower and exceptional leadership in communications. In my opinion, she's a triple threat—her creative work speaks for itself, she is an active collaborator that works seamlessly across different teams at Jackman, and she excels at building long term relationships with our engagement partners," Duff said.
Abrams joins Jackman from Cossette, where she served as Creative Director for the better part of a decade. Prior to Cossette, Abrams held key positions at BBDO, DBB and Ogilvy. Eschewing a widely predicted move to another blue-chip conglomerate, Abrams was drawn to Jackman's integrated approach and the opportunity to both drive and communicate creative work, thereby generating consequential results that speak to clients' greater business objectives.
"Jackman deeply embeds within clients' businesses, thereby ensuring our holistic strategy is integrated into their overall objectives. Understanding business needs unlocks more creative opportunities. With, Jackman's client focus is not merely 360-degrees, but rather 360 in 3D," Abrams said. "For Staples, we devised an approach that considers every consumer touchpoint, from communications to store design. The Let's Find Out campaign is the public facing expression of the working and learning company's commitment to discovery," Abrams added.
"Staples' transformation to The Working and Learning Company, has been well received by customers - we're getting real credit for unique solutions and expertise unmatched anywhere else. With this new campaign, we think we will break through in a far more powerful way, dramatically increasing the number of people we can partner with in our efforts to help them grow. The work is bold, insightful, and fun. The addition of Rachel Abrams to the Jackman leadership team immediately took the work to another level. It's a pleasure working with her and her team and I'm looking forward to our partnership as we continue to build our brand." said Staples Canada VP Marketing, Dave Mazzone.
The campaign work is supported with Consumer PR by Golin and media planning and buying by DentsuX. Jackman is planning future spots for Staples Canada, including Christmas 2021 and Back to School 2022, both featuring Mandel and Lord.
