Challenger Brand – What is a challenger brand? How can challenger brands compete against bigger budgets? What are the advantages of being in 2nd place?

On this week’s #MarketingBuzzword Podcast, Ben M Roberts speaks to Andrea D’Aloia about the buzzword ‘challenger brand’. As always the aim of the podcast is to debunk, demystify and bring back some meaning to the marketing buzzword.


Andrea D’Aloia has several years of exposure in managing successful brands as Nutella, Kinder and Burger King across different markets around the world.

Especially working for Burger King , where he is currently leading the role of EMEA Brand director, he has been involved in multiple awards winning campaigns that challenged the normal limitations Brands impose themselves. “Scary Clown  Night” , “Burger Clan”, “Love Fire” are just few examples.

His motto is “Be afraid, but do it anyways”.
