SunTrust Taps Y&R For $40 Mil. Job

SunTrust Banks last week named Y&R its lead agency after a review, the client said. Estimated billings are $40 million.

New York’s Y&R, part of WPP, takes over the account that had been handled by Atlanta-based independent WestWayne and its predecessor agency for 40 years. WestWayne did not defend in a four-month competition that included three other undisclosed finalists, the client said.
