Dubai, UAE, 20th December 2018: Multinational technology company Lenovo has appointed Leo Burnett MEA as its advertising agency for the PC business in the Middle East and Africa. Leo Burnett will provide strategic support to Lenovo’s team, while collaborating to develop a long-term advertising strategy to drive the brand’s business objectives.
Claire Carter, Marketing Director MEA at Lenovo said: “We wanted an agency to help us both tell the Lenovo story as a leading global tech brand but at the same time to connect and be relevant to our consumers in the region. We believe Leo Burnett’s expertise in the region and its creative use of technology to deliver integrated media solutions will help maximize our brands’ effectiveness in engaging our MENA audience.”
