JEREMY LEE ON ADVERTISING
Another week passes and another feather makes an appearance on Grey London's plumed titfer. Gillette's worldwide advertising business was shifted out of BBDO and into the Grey network after a pitch played out on a global stage.
The departure of the McCann London chief executive, Chris Macdonald, from these shores is a curious one: last Wednesday, he was in reassuringly familiar form strutting around the IPA Members Lunch, occasionally interrupting his glad-handing to pus...
