The World: Johannesburg - Lowe Bull beats three to secure Nando's brief

Lowe Bull Johannesburg has picked up the 24 million rand (£2 million) Nando's business across South Africa.

The restaurant chain awarded the business following a four-way pitch between Grey, Jupiter Drawing Room and FCB. The agency will now take responsibility for the company's creative work and strategic direction of the brand.

Matthew Bull (pictured), the chief creative officer of Lowe Worldwide, said: "From a new-business perspective, this is a very positive time for the Lowe Bull Group in South Africa. Winning Nando's is the icing on the cake in a run of great wins, including Metropolitan Insurance, the Tala Private Game Lodge account and retaining Rand Merchant Bank."
