- JC Penney stays with OMD
National Retailer JC Penney last fall put the wheels in motion for a potential agency review but that plan did not go through. Incumbent OMD, which has held the media account for 10 years, will stay on board. Last fall, JC Penney did assign national newspaper buying to Minneapolis based media placement firm . Before that Torrance, CA based ACG Communications had handled national newspaper buys for JC Penney for many years. Separately, Penney's chief marketing officer Debra Berman has left after 19 months with the company. Berman was named senior VP- and promoted to CMO last year. Berman's mission was to revitalize the brand. A major part of this involved reaching out more to Hispanic consumers. Kirk Waidelich, VP-marketing strategy, and Lynne Bartron, VP-marketing strategy, will oversee the CMO's responsibilities until a replacement for Berman is named. Penney spent $923 million on U.S. advertising in 2013. Unmeasured media spending increased 15 percent to $492 million; measured spending fell 15 percent to $431 million, according to Kantar Media.
