The Observatory International is assisting with the process and incumbent Leo Burnett is repitching. Adam & Eve/DDB, Anomaly and CHI & Partners are also in the running.

Rolls-Royce is believed to have made a decision in its search for an integrated creative agency. The review kicked off in January and pitches were held in the week commencing 20 February. Engine’s relationship with Rolls-Royce ended last year. 

Agencies vying for Halfords’ creative account are poised to find out this week if they have made it on to the shortlist after a series of chemistry meetings. Mother is the incumbent.

EBay has appointed VCCP as its lead creative agency across Europe after a competitive pitch against Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO, Anomaly and McCann. DDB Berlin was the brand’s agency of record in Italy and Germany, with Adam & Eve/DDB providing creative support in the UK.
