Newport Beach Advertising Agency Signs Two-Year Agreement to Represent OC Mercedes-Benz Dealerships

NEWPORT BEACH, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 9, 2012) - Skiver Advertising, an uncomplicated Southern California advertising agency known for integrating effective digital and traditional advertising under one roof, has been selected as the advertising agency of record for Mercedes-Benz of Laguna Niguel and Mercedes-Benz of Foothill Ranch.

The dealerships chose Skiver Advertising for its creative expertise and passion for well-executed strategy. The agency will handle everything from TV, radio and print advertising to mobile Web, digital display, search marketing, webisodes and interactive media. The team at Skiver has previously executed campaigns for automotive brands including Kawasaki, Nissan and Hyundai.

"Working on great brands with a clear, distinctive vision is what drives us to create outstanding work," says Skiver's Founder and CEO, Jeremy Skiver. "We're excited about this new relationship with such an amazing dealership and brand. Mercedes-Benz stands for luxury, and we're going to communicate that message in every piece we create for Mercedes-Benz of Laguna Niguel."

Mercedes-Benz of Laguna Niguel offers a Smart Car dealership on site, as well as Sprinter vans. Under Skiver's direction the work for Mercedes-Benz of Laguna Niguel will reflect the luxury and five-star service that are the cornerstones of the brand. The dealership's high level of service and approachable personality will be conveyed through a fully integrated campaign, highlighted by TV ads featuring General Manager Pat Bolter. The work will be a departure from the advertising typically seen in the category and break through the clutter on both digital and traditional platforms.

Orange County locals can see Skiver's work in a series of television spots produced for the dealership called "Man About Town." The three vignettes feature Bolter around town -- at the golf course, the movie theatre, and out to dinner -- filling everyone in on the excellent customer service offered at the dealership. The commercials are currently airing on cable networks throughout South Orange County and are available on MBLN's YouTube channel.

"We immediately responded to Skiver's refreshing creative approach to dealer advertising, and we're confident that our customers will respond as well," says Pat Bolter, General Manager of Mercedes-Benz of Laguna Niguel.
