East Coast Promo Shop Comes to S.F.

LOS ANGELES MDC Partners’ Source Marketing said yesterday that it has opened an office in San Francisco.

The Westport, Conn.-based diversified marketing agency said the move is principally to service the Skyy Vodka account, which the shop has had as a client since last October. Skyy spent $6 million on advertising in 2004 and $8 million through November 2005, according to Nielsen Monitor-Plus.

Agency CEO Derek Correia said that the San Francisco location also would be used for new business development.

Correia called San Francisco “the perfect anchor for our West Coast presence” in a statement.

AOL, Time Warner Cable, Comcast, Philips, Disney, TIAA-CREF, Reckitt Benckiser, Beiersdorf and Pfizer are also on Source Marketing’s client roster.
