  • Publicis Groupe buys UK's Walker Media and forms new Media Network

Publicis Groupe confirmed that it has acquired a little more than 75% of media agency Walker Media from M&C Saatchi. Saatchi will retain 24.9% of the agency. Walker, which operates in the UK, will become part of the ZenithOptimedia Group. Walker will remain a separate agency in the UK and be the “cornerstone” for what Publicis said would be a new media network that will sit within ZOG. The idea is to use ZO’s global scale to help Walker better serve clients that need planning and buying services outside the UK. The new network will be launched in 2014. It will be led by Walker chairman Phil Georgiadis. Walker clients include Marks & Spencer, Boots and KFC.
