It is not known if any other agencies participated in the review, which came about following the resignation of incumbent agency Eric Mower and Associates, based in Syracuse NY.

To win the business, Shevack teamed up with Buffalo-based marketing services firm, the Wolf Group. The two will split the business, with Shevack handling the creative element and Wolf providing account handling and direct marketing assignments.

Like the UK's Midland Bank, the Marine Midland Bank will shortly be rebranded as HSBC.
