Ogilvy will not be pitching for Placemakers

9 November 2010


Ogilvy will not be pitching for Placemakers

“Contrary to media reports, Ogilvy will not, repeat not, be pitching for the Placemakers account,” says Greg Partington, Managing Director of Qgilvy New Zealand.

“We’ve had the account for a couple of years and we are extremely proud of the work we have done for them but weeks ago for a variety of reasons we made the strategic decision we would not be involved in the current agency review by Placemakers”, he adds.

One media report today has suggested Ogilvy is participating in the new pitch process. “That’s simply not true,” says Partington. “We are an extremely large agency with a full volume of business and we’ve made the decision to concentrate all our resources on our existing clients and their expanding demands”.
