Grey wins Mars Bar across Europe

LONDON - Mars has dealt a further body blow to its relationship with D'Arcy in Europe by switching the Mars Bar creative account to Grey.

The decision follows a pitch involving Mars' three global networks -- D'Arcy, Grey and BBDO.

It reflects what industry sources say has been a loss of confidence by Mars in D'Arcy's ability to handle the brand across Europe.

A Mars executive said the company was looking forward to the new work "reigniting" the brand and building its position as a worldwide top seller and the biggest-selling confectionery product in the UK.
