DLKW senior executives, including (l to r) GregDelaney, Richard Warren, Mark Lund and Tom Knox, are understood to have been talking to IPG with a view to gaining full control over its shareholding for the first time since its formation in September 1999. The move is a likely precursor to an acquisition of the agency by another holding company.
Since 1999, DLKW has developed into a successful business with a client list that includes Vauxhall, Halifax and Burger King. Pre-tax profits for 2003 were £650,000.
Nobody from the agency was available to comment as Campaign went to press.
