- Cordiant Communications Group's second string network, Scholz & Friends, has acquired Vienna based agency Die Werbe AG.
The move will considerably strengthen the agency's presence in Austria, where it opened its first office in Vienna three years ago.
The Vienna agency is used to co-ordinate activity across the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Slovenia, and boasts DHL and Schwarzkopf & Henkel among its clients.
Die Werbe will continue to be run as a separate agency by its existing management team. The agency, which opened for business in 1995, lists Novartis and Yamaha Music among its clients.
