Lenovo: the pursuit by Saatchi & Saatchi New York

We Are Social will manage Lenovo’s social media activity from its New York and Singapore offices. It won the business after a four-way competitive pitch.

The brief includes creating content, measurement, product launches and crisis management.

Lenovo previously looked after its social media in house.

Rod Strother, director, digital and social centre of excellence at Lenovo, said the hire is part of Lenovo’s strategy to be "the most talked about personal technology brand".

Lenovo recently overtook Hewlett-Packard to become the world’s number one PC maker, in terms of shipments made.

In the past couple of years Lenovo has embarked on a strategy designed to help it to become a well-known consumer brand and it rolled out a global campaign by Saatchi & Saatchi in June last year.

Its most recent campaign was shot by the James Bond director Martin Campbell on behalf of Saatchi & Saatchi New York.
