Kevin George, President and CMO of Mosaic, Talks to Ad Age About Trends in Experiential Marketing

Kevin george

Kevin George has spent more than 25 years in marketing -- almost all of it on the client side working for companies including Seagram, Unilever and Beam Suntory. Last year he jumped into the agency world, taking a job as president and chief marketing officer of Mosaic, a fast-growing shop specializing in experiential and content creation. In doing so, he gained some new perspective on his old client-side role. "The timelines that clients give agencies is really unreasonable in general. Time tends to produce better creative and I start to appreciate that on this side," he said. Those were among the insights Mr. George shared with Ad Age in an interview from the Chicago office of Mosaic, where the shop is headquartered. Mosaic is owned by Acosta, a giant sales and marketing company that serves as the outsourced sales arm for major consumer-packaged goods companies. Mr. George's responsibilities include serving as CMO of Acosta. Mosaic -- whose clients include Procter & Gamble, Coca Cola, Anheuser-Busch InBev, Microsoft, Best Buy and Diageo -- has grown from 1,972 employees in 2015 to 2,487 this year. Mosaic in June acquired Los Angeles-based content company Contend. The shop's clients include Netflix, for which it crafted a 1980s-influenced promotional campaign for the hit show "Stranger Things." Mr. George left Beam Suntory late last year after serving as the liquor marketer's global chief marketing officer. He joined Beam in 2009 after a career at Unilever where he was VP-general manager for Unilever's deodorant and health care business. He was known for spearheading unconventional marketing campaigns for Axe body spray. In the interview from Mosaic's new office in Chicago's bustling West Loop neighborhood, Mr. George discussed trends he witnessed as a liquor marketer, while offering insights into how the experiential business is changing.

Am a single mum with two kids to take care of. My name is Linda,am from Canada.for the pass 7 months I have been in a financial mess, A couple of weeks ago a friend of mine told me about how Mr Steve Wayne helped her by granting her a loan with a low interest rate of 3% and better repayment schedule. She also told me they can help me out of my financial crisis too. I never believed her,because I have been to different Banks/private loan lenders who could not help me due to my poor credit scores. She advised me,and I give a try, so I mailed them via Email(stevewayneloancompany440@gmail.com), and explained all about my financial situation to them, they took me through the loan process and granted me a loan of $250,000USD on 15th of November as I have applied for,and today I have a business of my own which I’m proud of and I can as also take care of my kids bills and some other things as well. all i did was to follow the terms and condition's of the loan. I’m so happy I did. I’m sharing this today because I care about you all, I known how it feels to be in a financial mess,and i don't want anyone to fall in the hand of those fake lenders,who claims to be genuine, I can never stop thanking them for their help.because Mr Steve Wayne Loan Company really showed me light when others abandoned me, I’ll keep telling the world about their kindness in my life, If you must contact any private lender,i will advice you to kindly contact Mr Steve Wayne for your loan,and i know they we also help you to get any amount of loan you need please contact them via email(stevewayneloancompany440@gmail.com)
