The7stars, the incumbent, picked up the business in 2014, when it was reported to be worth £10 million. 

The independent agency beat UM London, Arena Media and Carat Edinburgh, the 14-year incumbent. The process was handled by Creativebrief and lasted more than a year.

Leith won Scottish Power’s above-the-line account last year after a review that kicked off in April and was also overseen by Creativebrief.

Fallon was the incumbent on the ad business. It won the £7 million account in July 2013, beating Inferno, MBA and Newhaven.

The Publicis Groupe agency created Scottish Power’s most-recent ad. It explained how the brand looks at the bigger picture, such as its commitment for a "cleaner energy future", and the smaller picture by having its customer phone lines open until 10pm.
