Wisr consolidates media and creative with Speed and Bear Meets Eagle on Fire

Neo-lender Wisr has consolidated its creative and media accounts with Bear Meets Eagle on Fire and Speed, respectively.

The appointments are effective immediately and come after an extensive review of Wisr’s agency requirements, stimulated by its growth and customer retention status.

Wisr’s chief marketing officer, James Goodwin, said: “As a fast-growing challenger brand in the Australian consumer finance market, it’s really important to find the right partners who can deliver stellar performance outcomes and help bring to life our purpose of helping Australians improve their financial wellness. We’re really excited about the partnership and the work that will be delivered.”

For Speed, Wisr follows a successful year of client wins, including Seafood Industry Australia, Memories, Voyages and B&D Group.

Bear Meets Eagle on Fire, the creative shop from Josh Mullens and Micah Walker, hired its first managing director Toby Hussey in October.

Speed managing director, Duncan Parfitt, said the partnership was a perfect fit.

“Wisr are ambitious, progressive and performance oriented, which fits perfectly into our agency model. They are exactly the sort of dynamic marketers that value our business results-oriented media approach,” Parfitt said.

Walker added: “We’ve been lucky enough to find some true partnerships in our infancy. The entire Wisr team has welcomed us into every part of their business and we’re determined to help them build a truly great success story.”

There were no incumbents on the account.
