SCA, the Swedish personal hygiene company that owns brands including Charmin, Plenty and Velvet, is reviewing its estimated £100 million global media planning and buying account as part of a wider overhaul of its advertising and promotions agency arrangements. It is also likely to embrace SCA's media in the US, Latin America and Asia. Carat is the incumbent on the account.
Telefónica has appointed Mother as the global ad agency for its Movistar brand after a pitch against McCann Erickson and Publicis. Mother will now create all ads for Movistar as Telefónica embarks on a rebrand of its consumer-facing services. The Movistar brand will replace the Telefónica identity in Spain and Latin America.
Meanwhile, the O2 brand, whose advertising is handled by VCCP, will be rolled out across Northern and Central Europe, replacing Telefónica's separate brands where they exist across Europe. Telefónica will only be used as a corporate-facing brand.
