The appointment coincides with attempts by Scottish Power to become a national consumer brand and follows a pitch among roster agencies. Rapp now adds the bigger domestic consumer DM activity to its existing work with the company.

The agency has overseen Scottish Power’s small and medium enterprises DM account since its Edinburgh office won the business in August 2012.

Bright Blue Day previously handled the majority of Scottish Power’s direct work.

The company appointed the7stars to its £10 million media account in June and Fallon to its advertising business in July 2013.
