The network won the business, which includes the £1.6 million UK media account, after a pitch process.

Its Manchester-based agency PHD North will handle the UK account, which was previously held by Media Campaign.

PHD will handle the account across 14 European markets including Germany, Spain, Ireland, the Netherlands, Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Austria.
