Gray, Kirk/Van Sant Is Among Finalists In Lockheed Review

Three agencies have advanced in the review for Lockheed Martin’s $15 million account.

Gray, Kirk/Van Sant in Baltimore, Keiler & Co. in Farmington, Conn., and Cramer-Krasselt in Milwaukee will make creative presentations May 3, sources said.

Arnold, McLean, Va.; E. James White Communications, Herndon, Va.; Mullen, Wenham, Mass.; and Hampel/Stefanides, New York, were eliminated. Incumbent DDB New York chose not to defend.

“Lockheed will seek an agency with global capabilities,” said a source familiar with the Bethesda, Md., defense contractor. “They want to develop an identity that supports its individual business units.”

Achenbaum Bogda in New York is conducting the review.
