IPG’s Commonwealth//McCann Recognized as GM Supplier of Year

New York, April 17, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- General Motors has recognized Interpublic Group’s (NYSE: IPG) Commonwealth//McCann as one of its top global suppliers of 2023 during its annual Supplier of the Year recognition event in Miami. Founded in 2013, Commonwealth//McCann is the dedicated global agency collective for the Chevrolet brand. In total, 86 suppliers were recognized this year, and this is the fifth time Commonwealth//McCann has won the distinguished award (2018, 2019, 2020, 2022, 2023).

“We’re honored to partner with these top suppliers who have made notable contributions to our transformation. Together, we’re pushing boundaries, pioneering new technologies and redefining what’s possible,” said Jeff Morrison, Vice President, Global Purchasing and Supply Chain. “Their innovation and support are critical to helping us deliver the world-class vehicles our customers have to come expect.”

Rigorous Selection Process Emphasizes Shared Values and Results
A global, cross-functional GM team rigorously selects Supplier of the Year and Overdrive award winners based on performance, innovation, cultural alignment with GM’s values, and commitment to achieving GM’s ambitious goals.

"We’re thrilled to be recognized again as one of General Motors’ top suppliers in the world,” said Grant Theron, IPG’s Global Client Lead for General Motors and Chief Executive Officer of Commonwealth//McCann. “This year’s award is particularly meaningful to our team during a time of incredible transformation and the launch of a new brand platform – “Together let’s drive.” As our track record shows, we remain deeply committed to bringing GM and Chevrolet a modern offering that delivers real results and world-class creative.”

The GPSC Priority Wheel guides the selection process, prioritizing the customer in every aspect of supply chain decision-making. This framework prioritizes three core values: Safety, Inclusion and Relationships. These foundational values underpin all other priorities, including Sustainability, Innovation, Execution, Resilience and Profitability. By emphasizing these values, GPSC fosters a robust, diverse, collaborative partnership ecosystem that drives mutual success for GM and its suppliers.

In addition to earning the 2023 General Motors’ Supplier of the Year award, Commonwealth//McCann has received numerous creative awards over the years in partnership with Chevrolet, including Cannes, Clio, Webby, and The One Show, among others. It was also the recipient of last year’s Effie Awards, the industry’s gold standard for measuring marketing effectiveness.
