San Francisco-Based Pierry Rebrands as Wunderman Thompson
Move bolsters Wunderman Thompson’s Salesforce Center of Excellence to deliver enhanced, connected experiences for clients.
March 3, 2020 – NEW YORK, NY – San Francisco-based marketing services agency Pierry Inc. has rebranded to parent company Wunderman Thompson, a WPP creative, data and technology agency built to inspire growth for its clients. Pierry’s rebrand solidifies Wunderman Thompson’s Salesforce Center of Excellence and enhances their marketing technology offering under one brand. The new identity leverages Pierry’s existing skills and combines them with Wunderman Thompson’s marketing technology expertise to meet clients’ growing demand for the Salesforce Customer 360 Platform, and Pierry and Wunderman Thompson’s shared clients will now have simpler access to the expertise of both agencies.
Founded in 2008, Pierry was acquired by Wunderman in September of 2017 and became a significant part of Wunderman Thompson’s Salesforce Center of Excellence after Wunderman and J. Walter Thompson came together in 2019 to become Wunderman Thompson.
Wunderman Thompson’s Salesforce COE encompasses Pierry, Mirum, ENext, EMark, The Cocktail, and Gorilla Group to deliver expanded marketing automation, CRM and CDP solutions for clients worldwide.
Wunderman Thompson’s Salesforce offering reduces complexity for clients by providing a one-stop solution to create customer experiences that deliver what consumers need, when they need it, at speed. By simplifying marketing technology, clients can focus on creating the kind of experiences that inspire customers and consumers to action, with technology that transforms customer journeys.
Wunderman Thompson’s marketing technology offering is comprised of three key elements: customer acquisition technology, experience technology and commerce, integrated with Wunderman Thompson’s data and mobile experts to deliver customized digital interactions and build deeper ties with customers.
“With Pierry’s rebranding, Wunderman Thompson positions itself as one of Salesforce’s largest agency partners globally for building data-driven marketing and advertising technology solutions for personalized customer engagement,” said Stephane Viallet, VP of Alliances, Salesforce.
“I’m excited to officially move Pierry under the Wunderman Thompson banner,” said Neil Stewart, Global CEO of Wunderman Thompson Commerce. “Data-driven thinking leads to consumer experiences that get results for clients, and Pierry’s expertise strengthens our Salesforce Center of Excellence to inspire growth for our clients.”
