GKV Selected for Health Care Expertise and Proven Lead-Generation Success

BALTIMORE – GKV, a full-service marketing agency, was named the Agency of Record for Network Health, a leading health insurance provider in Wisconsin.

GKV will provide a comprehensive set of in-house capabilities including strategic planning; creative development including TV, print, digital; production and distribution; media planning and buying; and direct response and lead tracking.

“Network Health prides itself on being just a little different than our competitors – helping our members find ways to lead healthier and happier lives, providing the benefits, tools and resources they need, and talking to our members in plain language,” stated Penny Ransom, Chief Administrative Officer for Network Health. “When we started looking for a new marketing partner, we wanted one that was like us – a little different. We found that in GKV. They are experts in health insurance and they do things a little differently to challenge the status quo in the category and produce results.”

“Network Health is the perfect kind of Challenger Brand client for GKV,” stated Garry Raim, Partner and EVP Direct and Interactive Marketing, GKV. “They already ‘live, breathe and behave’ differently than the rest of the health insurance category.
