World: Singapore - Tequila\TBWA wins Singaporean bank business, Friday, 05 November 2004 12:00AM

Standard Chartered Bank has appointed Tequila\TBWA as its global advertising agency following a three-month pitch process. The agency will set up a global team in Singapore to handle the strategic and creative global account, which spans 30 countries across three regions.

The bank has, however, been criticised by agencies involved in the pitch.
