The impact of Green's departure on Naked's creative credentials is unlikely to have escaped the notice of the other shortlisted agencies - Fallon, 180 Amsterdam, Anomaly and the Engine Group.
The shortlist for the iShares pitch, through Oystercatchers, has been cut to four agencies/pairings from nine. Kitcatt Nohr Alexander Shaw is teaming up with Karmarama to pitch against M&C Saatchi and Lida, while Albion and VCCP will pitch alone.
The £2.5 million Travelodge advertising pitch has thrown up another varied shortlist. The budget hotel chain has chosen Krow, Mother, M&C Saatchi and Rapier to compete for the business, as well as the incumbent, Doner Cardwell Hawkins. Pitches will take place during the first week of December.
A decision on the £8 million Open University media pitch is due this Friday with Mindshare and Rapp Media fighting it out. One household is certain to be split whatever the outcome - Rapp's Ben Sutherland is fronting his agency's pitch, while his wife, Mindshare's Lucy Stafford, is leading the WPP agency's efforts.
