Sony is on the hunt for an agency to work on global campaigns for its headphones amid competition from rivals Beats By Dre and Bose.

Guinness is looking for a digital agency to take on the brand's website maintenance and handle community management globally. The global website was built by Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO in 2014 through XLab, its production innovation arm, but management is currently overseen by an in-house Guinness team based in Dublin. 

JD Williams is looking for a creative agency through AAR. The online retailer has worked with McCann Manchester since 2012. 

Infiniti, the car marque owned by Renault-Nissan, is reviewing its digital, CRM and social media business across Western Europe. TMW Unlimited has handled the account for eight years and will be repitching for the account.
