CVS has awarded its business to Interpublic Group of Cos' UM, concluding its pitch that began this spring. Pile and Company supported the search. The business moves from WPP's Mindshare, which won the account in 2010 when the creative- and media-agency business was last up for review.For UM, it's another huge win just weeks after the agency's Coke account win. It's also an added bonus for parent network IPG Mediabrands as the network's other agency, Initiative, loses the massive Hyundai Kia account.CVS in 2014 spent US$84.4 million on measured media in the U.S., according to Kantar Media.
Kraft Foods Group is expected to announce a media review in the coming weeks, sources told Adweek. Starcom is the incumbent for Kraft's media planning and buying account. The review is the result of rationalization measures related to the implementation of the Kraft-Heinz merger..

Last year the marketer for brands like Oscar Mayer, Planters and Maxwell House spent $513.8 million on U.S. measured media, according to Kantar Media.
