-Salesforce partner and digital marketing agency Pierry integrated within Wunderman Thompson. It’s the latest integration for the WPP agency following similar moves for Mirum, iStrategyLabs and Possible in North America.


-Kantar CEO Eric Salama is stepping down. 

-FCB Brasil won the Heineken non-alcoholic beverages account.

-United Media Solutions’ Richard Zhu weighs in on how advertisers should respond to the coronavirus pandemic.

-VMLY&R London encourages you to “pint-block” your mates in a road-safety campaign for the U.K. Department For Transport.

-Rip Van Wafels maker Rip Van selected Partners+Napier to handle an upcoming brand positioning assignment.
