HRP’s relationship with its media agency, M2M, will be unaffected by the review.
Pitches for Rolls-Royce’s social media account took place last week. The BMW-owned car marque saw four agencies. The process is also being handled by AAR.
The BBC has drawn up a list of eight shops to attend chemistry meetings next week. The statutory pitch is being handled by Oystercatchers. Rainey Kelly Campbell Roalfe/Y&R and Karmarama are the incumbents.
