We use the official corporate name. Entering “P&G” or “Coke” will not work! Entering “Kimberly Clark” won’t work either. This company has a hyphen (Kimberly-Clark). Here’s a tip – when searching, just enter a few characters (e.g. enter “proct” for Procter & Gamble).
Brand assignments are indicated when this information is available. We do our best to stay on top of this information, however, keep in mind that brand people get switched around frequently in this industry, particularly at Tier 1 companies.
