The Week: Media reviews - Renault pitch down to two

Renault-Nissan has shortlisted Carat and OMD to go head to head in a final pitch for its £650 million global media planning and buying business.

The other pitching agencies, Havas' MPG, WPP's Mediaedge:cia and Publicis Groupe's VivaKi operation, have been knocked out of the process. Carat currently handles Renault's £350 million pan-European media account, while OMD is Nissan's agency of record in the region.
