Barclays appointed Rapp to its consolidated £11 million UK consumer DM account in October 2012 after a competitive pitch that was handled by the bank’s procurement department.

Bartle Bogle Hegarty, Dare and Maxus oversee Barclays’ above-the-line, digital and media accounts respectively and are unaffected by the changes.

Rapp declined to comment.
