Agency Management Support

Leadership and support in times of change To be successful, Agency relationships, like most business partnerships, require a substantial level of collaboration.  As the marketing supply chain becomes more complex, companies find themselves constantly evaluating the efficiency and effectiveness of their partnerships.  But, often, marketing and procurement professionals are often challenged by the time required to adequately assess and optimize this important investment. The Bedford Group can fill marketing and procurement executive gaps in ways that range from traditional, remote consulting to a more visible, on-site, “interim” approach.  As leaders in the Agency Search category, we have a long record of leading companies to determine the right plan for agency management based on their unique business goals and objectives. In addition, if the plan requires a change to existing partnerships our professionals become part of the team and provide support during this sometimes difficult transition period.  We also provide counsel to help Human Resources find permanent leadership more quickly.  In particular, our professionals will support your team with:
  • Agency Model Development
  • Agency Consolidation
  • Integration of Agency Partners
  • Compensation Negotiations
  • Agency Management Training
  • “On Boarding” of New Agency Partners
  • Scope of Work Development
Our consultants have held numerous hands-on marketing leadership positions in large corporations and are ready to be part of your team.  We’ve worked across a wide range of industries in the business to business and consumer space, including healthcare, financial services, consumer package goods, telecommunications, pharmaceuticals and more.  Because we are high on the learning curve in most categories, we are uniquely prepared to make a difference from Day One.
