Agencies line up for global Remington

Remington has called a global review of its advertising arrangements. Grey Worldwide London, which handles the shaving and haircare giant's business globally, has declined to repitch.

The review will be run from Remington's New York base. A spokesman for Remington said the review followed a "re-evaluation of global brand and strategy".

The company spent £2.34 million in the UK in the year ending 31 January, according to Nielsen Media Research.

Karen Shepherd, the Remington UK managing director and the former international marketing director, said: "We have had a fantastic partnership with Grey, which ultimately led to the 'it's what's on the outside that counts' campaign, which gave Remington stand-out in a highly competitive market."

The Grey deputy chairman, Nicola Mendelsohn, said: "We wish them well for the future."
