Avon appoints Red

01 Aug 2019

We’re delighted to have been appointed the global cause, brand and corporate communications agency of Avon.

The global HQ brief was won after a competitive pitch and includes global strategy and news streamlining, earned corporate and consumer media relations that supports key globally-led initiatives, such as the Avon Foundation Pink Light Project for Breast Cancer Awareness month and initiatives that fight Violence Against Women and Girls.

Natalie Deacon, executive director of corporate affairs and CSR, and President, Avon Foundation for Women, said: "Red Consultancy impressed us with their corporate and consumer storytelling experience, understanding of our brand and showcased the ability to craft engaging stories out of all the great work we already do." 

Red Consultancy deputy MD of consumer, Perena Barrett, added: "Avon is a fascinating brand – one we’ve all grown up with and recognise, but have perhaps taken for granted. Innovative, affordable, quality products aside, we are inspired by the work they do to support women globally. Their very business model gives women the freedom to earn on their own terms, and has done for 130 years. The Avon story deserves to be heard and we’re delighted to be able to tell it."
