4 April, 2012
— One of the biggest brewing groups in the country, Petrópolis, chose Young & Rubicam, an agency from the Newcomm Group and the market leader for 10 years, to take care of the advertising communication of its products. Among its goals, the new agency will face the challenge of strengthening the positioning of the Group’s brands, among which Crystal and Itaipava beers and the power drink TNT.

After eight years of work done by the incumbent agency Multi Solution, the company chose to promote an extensive bid, in which seven advertising agencies participated. “We received creative and very interesting proposals, but we chose Y&R for three main reasons: creativity, compliance with the marketing strategies and negotiation visions,” Costa explains.
To Roberto Justus, partner and president of the Newcomm Group, Y&R’s holding company in Brazil, it’s an honor to work for the Petrópolis Group. “I am very excited with the opportunity of working for the Petrópolis Group. Acting in such a competitive market such as brewery is a great challenge,” he comments.
