$100 Mil. Schwab Business Goes to Euro RSCG

NEW YORK Havas’ Euro RSCG has won creative chores on the Charles Schwab account following a review, the agency confirmed. The client spends more than $100 million annually on ads.

A new campaign for the client is slated to launch early next year.

David Jones, CEO of Euro RSCG in New York, who led the agency’s pitch, said in a statement, “We will partner with this iconic financial services brand to tell its phenomenal story, leverage its power across all communications channels, and propel its growth and success. They have a tremendously accomplished marketing team and we look forward to working with them.”

The San Francisco-based brokerage chose the agency over Grey Global Group’s Grey in New York; Publicis Groupe’s Publicis & Hal Riney in San Francisco; and independent Wieden + Kennedy in Portland, Ore.

Becky Saeger, client evp, brand management and marketing communication, noted Euro RSCG’s “vision, strategic and creative depth” as prompting the shop’s selection.

Omnicom Group’s GSD&M in Austin, Texas, had handled the assignment.

Select Resources International in Santa Monica, Calif., oversaw the review process.
