5 Texas Shops Are Cleaning Up Their Final Acts For DOT

Five agencies advanced to the final round of a review for the Texas Department of Transportation’s anti-litter account.
Set to make presentations before the end of the month for the $1.5 million contract, according to sources, are JWT Specialized Communications of Dallas, Fogarty Klein & Partners of Houston and three shops in Austin, Texas: Sherry Matthews Advertising, T3 and Tuerff-Davis EnviroMedia.
Executives at those agencies declined to comment at press time.
Department of Transportation officials said they would not discuss the agency search until its conclusion. Nine shops responded to a request for proposal after GSD&M of Austin decided not to defend and the client extended an initial deadline by two weeks. –Steve Krajewski
