Told Ya!, Campaign Imminent: Borden Dairy hires first AOR to increase spend, relaunch brand

Tony Sarsam, CEO of already reported he hired Joe DePetrillo as CMO, effective July. Since then, he brought on former brand manager of Daisy, VJ Chengappa, as senior marketing manager (December) and former executive assistant at PepsiCo, Hillary Weaver, as sales and marketing analyst (October).

Together, this new team has been figuring out how to give Borden's long-established mascot, Elsie the Cow, a modern voice that will appeal to the modern mom. Facebook posts now includes lines like, "More than milk. It's a moment." and "I'm a mom on a mission to bring all moms together to help our kids grow up healthy and strong." 

To assist with the reboot, following an RFP process, Borden tapped Curiosity Advertising as its new AOR. They are Borden's first AOR and will handle all creative, consumer strategy and media. 

Curiosity's first campaign will launch in Q1 2019 and include social and video. Therefore, sellers with high reach among moms via social and video channels should go after dollars. Afterwards, focus on top spending periods Q2 and Q4.

Expect budgets for Borden and Curiosity's new efforts to be high, by the way. Sarsam said Borden would be increasing marketing spend to help compete against Dean, Mayfield, store brands and the growing dairy alternatives market. I imagine most of these increases will go to social and video, as disclosed, along with digital.

iSpot reports Borden stopped running national TV spots last year, and with Borden's new focus on video and social, it seems unlikely the medium will make a return. 

Adbeat reports digital display spend over the last 12 months totaled $46,700 and was placed via Other (55%), Google (29%) and direct buy (8%) onto sites like,,, and Ads over the last 24 months totaled $235,7000 and were placed via DataXu (50%), Google (20%) and direct buy (11%) onto sites like,,, and 

Keep in mind, though, that Borden's top ad destinations will likely change as it repositions its brand to target the modern, millennial mom. I would especially expect to see a lot of ads run through YouTube.
