HINO MOTOR SALES
A TOYOTA GROUP COMPANY
Xavier Advertising were given a tough task to bring the brand to life. Although Hino has been in Australia for over 50 years, the customer insights showed that we needed more than just retail campaigns. We needed to build familiarity and connect with our customers on an emotional level.
The strategy developed considered both the future and present. It strategically allowed for growth and met the brief on what needed to be delivered immediately.
It considered the tight perimeters including budget and timelines. It also saw Hino heading in a new direction and with that, would need senior management support. Xavier became a crucial element in gaining approval of the new direction and formed relationships with senior management in order to gain support.
Over the years, the brand campaigns showed great results through our customer insights. Familiarity and consideration were improving and aftersales is now part of the consideration phase when it comes to customers path to purchase.
Hino are constantly putting Xavier under pressure to deliver campaigns to tight budgets and fast turn arounds and they always deliver. The senior management at Xavier also take the time to know their customers and that’s what aided the brand campaigns being so successful.
When Xavier first came on board as our lead agency in charge of Strategy and Creativity, they took the time to know each department manager and understand the various parts of the business. They also attended/attend all dealership conferences and also built relationships with both dealers and customers.
Xavier are part of the family and are very passionate about the brand and the direction. This is what makes the partnership so great and we enjoy working with Xavier.

Novartis Animal Health Australia and Global have used Xavier’s services on global and local levels. Locally we have used Xavier services from strategy development right through to media buying and tactical implementation. At all times I’ve found Xavier Advertising able to add significant commercial value to our business through innovative, well thought through campaigns that are both targeted and effective.
A personal and professional highlight has been working on a fully integrated lead generation campaign that resulted in double digit sales growth for two consecutive years. A first for this industry segment, the campaign was managed flawlessly by Xavier Advertising from concept development through to implementation.
Whilst the team at Xavier have driven a number of industry first campaigns for our business, it is the service that Xavier Advertising provide that truly set them apart, and is a key reason why after more than 40 years, Novartis Animal Health still considers Xavier Advertising to be a true strategic partner.

NATIONAL OPERATIONS MANAGER
It was refreshing to find an advertising agency with so much expertise and talent, yet so grounded and truly devoted to connecting with us, their client. UnderCoverWear has enjoyed a positive and successful partnership with Xavier Advertising for over 9 years.
With the production of four fashion catalogues every year, UnderCoverWear has a constant requirement to be at the forefront of understanding our customers fashion needs and aspirations with the right pitch and catalogue layout and Xavier Advertising has delivered this every time and won several catalogue awards along the way. In addition to our catalogues, Xavier Advertising has produced many advertising campaigns, both TVC’s and billboards over the years and worked on an endless number of print related projects. Their professional manner of working concurrently with us to determine and reflect on the strategic marketing and business objectives.
In my experience, Xavier Advertising provide fantastic support as an agency partner. One of their major strengths is with regards to strategic thinking, where they have shown an ability to really get to the core of an issue and unearth fantastic insights that then form the basis of effective strategies.
I also highly value the fact that they provide access to senior management – in my experience a lot of agencies make similar claims during the initial phase, only to hand work off to juniors once the work is secured. In contrast, my experience with Xavier is that the senior team that made the initial contact are there for me on a daily basis, working in a very hands-on fashion on my projects, and it’s a level of knowledge and experience that I value being able to draw upon.
Finally, from a cost perspective I have always found them to be extremely competitive, yet at the same time they have proven themselves to be committed to being responsive and available, with a track record of meeting deadlines, and in consistently supplying high quality creative solutions.
HIKOKI POWER TOOLS
Xavier provided invaluable input into the strategic direction of the business. The success of the rebrand was not only due to the creation of quality marketing collateral, but the integration with sales objective and key business initiatives.
As the brand transition affected every touch point of the brand and cost efficiencies were achieved through partnerships Xavier holds with media buyers and longstanding relationships with production agencies. We had to deliver marketing assets in tight time frames that were technical and functional, Xavier provided highly creative content that was constant, on brand and executed excellently.

BOARD OF DIRECTORS
GALLIPOLI SCHOLARSHIP FUND
I can and will unhesitatingly recommend Xavier Advertising, and the principal Mr Omer Incekara to provide you with a service that will be second to none. His oversight and management of the company, down to the finest detail will serve you well. His staff are competent, caring and concerned at all levels of involvement and guidance, should that be necessary, is firm but gentle and worthwhile.
Two years ago, Xavier Advertising took on the Gallipoli Scholarship, promoting the Scholarship with an enthusiasm and zeal that is hard to keep up with (but we manage). Creative ideas are always discussed, and our opinion and desires taken into account. The staff are helpful, caring and very generous with their time in guiding relative novices through totally foreign concepts.
Our target audience has expanded exponentially each year and the Gallipoli Scholarship is fast becoming a recognisable entity in the target market. Omer provides direction and advice in relation to our marketing strategy and to date has not been proved wrong. Of the applications received so far this year, by far the majority have come to us courtesy of the advertising Xavier have designed and activated.
