Intuit TurboTax Names Wieden+Kennedy Advertising Agency Of Record

Stocks in this article: INTU

After a three-month review, Intuit Inc. (Nasdaq: INTU) has named Portland-based Wieden+Kennedy as its new advertising agency of record for its flagship TurboTax® products.

Wieden+Kennedy was selected based on a proven track record of developing creative that transforms brands. Effective Aug. 1, the agency will provide creative and media planning services for TurboTax in the United States.

“From our first meeting, the chemistry between our two teams was clear,” said Greg Johnson, vice president of marketing for TurboTax. “The Wieden+Kennedy team understands that TurboTax is central to the financial lives of millions of Americans. They share our belief that TurboTax exists to empower people to do their taxes and get their biggest refund. With their long history of developing great work that transforms brands, we are thrilled about the prospects for this partnership.”

The selection of Wieden+Kennedy signals the next chapter in the more than 25-year history of TurboTax. The nation’s leading online tax service, TurboTax not only helps people do their own taxes, it gives them more power over the money they’ve worked so hard to earn.

"Needless to say, we are thrilled about this partnership," said Tom Blessington, managing director for W+K Portland. "The back and forth was immediately informal but challenging, and it is in this climate we look forward to doing great work together."
