When naming the top innovative companies in the world, names like Google and Nike immediately jump to mind. According to Fast Company magazine, Dodge belongs among those prestigious names.
This week, Fast Company announced their list of the “World’s 50 Most Innovative Companies” which will be featured in their March 2014 issue. Their list included household names Dropbox, Netflix, and Twitter, and squeezed in between Yelp and SXSW is Dodge. Fast Company’s Jason Feifer praised Dodge’s marketing strategy in 2013, particularly their tie-ins with Anchorman 2 and Fast & Furious 6. Additionally, the Dodge brand was central in the Syfy channel’s series Defiance, and one of Dodge’s new ad campaigns featured popular rapper Pitbull.
Dodge’s presence in popular culture was hard to miss in 2013. Feifer hits the nail on the head when he writes, “When the eponymous character in FX’s Archer received a Dodge for his birthday, it was proof of cultural saturation: That wasn’t a paid spot. Dodge was just on the writer’s minds.”
Olivier Francois, Chief Marketing Officer of Chrysler Group LLC, thanked Fast Company for the honor and praised the work done by the marketing teams with Chrysler LLC. “The campaigns and partnerships we create for each of our brands are as individual and different as the brands themselves,” he stated in a press release. “The Dodge initiatives Fast Company highlighted convey a mind-set that is purely Dodge.”
