Each campaign showcased Amica’s 113-year heritage of providing an extraordinary experience to its policyholders with emotional storytelling that was not only relevant for Amica, but unique and different from most other brand advertising. In the “Emotional Journey” TV campaign and the “Great Experiences” online video campaign, the magic and emotion of life’s most special moments connected viewers to the promise of the extraordinary experience they can expect when choosing Amica as their insurance provider. Both spots debuted in 2019.

“Amica is a special brand and we take great pride in telling their amazing story,” said Steve Wolfberg, Cronin’s Chief Creative & Growth Officer. “It’s an honor to be recognized among some of the most respected agencies, production companies and television companies in the world.”

“It’s extremely rewarding to earn recognition for the strategic and creative efforts behind this excellent work,” said Jim Bussiere, Amica’s Senior Vice President of Marketing.  “The partnership we share with Cronin is a true collaboration. The team helped us articulate what our policyholders regularly tell us about insuring with Amica and convey that sentiment, which is rooted in Amica’s sincere care and regard for its policyholders.”
