Dentsu lands East Coast rail account
By Staff, campaignlive.co.uk, Thursday, 26 November 2009 12:06AM
Dentsu London has picked up the account for the newly formed East Coast Mainline Company, the public-sector franchise that runs the East Coast train line between London and Scotland. It is the agency's first win since Jim Kelly took over as the regional director for Dentsu Europe.
It secured the business without a pitch after control of the line was taken away from National Express and given to the public-sector company, which will handle the franchise until 2011 when it will be passed back into private hands.
Dentsu will create an integrated campaign designed to communicate East Coast's new branding as well as advertise fare offers.
Rob Payne, the acting head of marketing at East Coast, said: "We have asked Dentsu London to work with us because we recognised that they not only had an intimate understanding of the sector, but also produce consistently strong creative work. These qualities are exactly what we need in an agency to help make East Coast a success."
Kelly was appointed in July to reinvigorate Dentsu's business across Europe.
