Ute and SUV maker GWM has appointed The Hallway, in a competitive pitch, as agency of record to manage brand strategy, advertising, digital, social and CRM.

GWM the world’s 10th largest auto manufacturer by market capitalisation, has since relaunching in Australia in 2016 built strong momentum 

Steve Maciver, head of marketing and communications at GWM: “The Hallway impressed us through the pitch process with top-class strategic thinking and creativity.

"Their depth of automotive experience shone through as did their practical knowledge of digital transformations. GWM is a brand that seeks innovation as a means to improve the customer experience and The Hallway’s record in this space made them the right partner for our next phase of growth.”

Jules Hall, CEO at The Hallway: “We are incredibly excited to be partnering with GWM. It’s a unique opportunity to be joining forces with such an impressive organisation at this stage of their growth curve. Their ambition is huge. Just like ours. Watch this space!”

Maciver: “We’d like to thank Havas Melbourne for their professionalism and commitment to GWM over the past three years and are grateful for the important part they played in establishing the brand in Australia and New Zealand. We wish them well for the future.”

The appointment is effective from January and covers GWM’s Australian and New Zealand businesses.

The win comes as The Hallway last week launched its new specialist performance marketing division, THPD, focused on creative content optimised for direct response digital channels.
