International: P&G shifts $75 million pampers account to Saatchi in global consolidation

Procter & Gamble Co. has shifted the $50 million to $75 million Pampers diaper account in North America to Publicis Groupe's Saatchi & Saatchi, New York, in a global consolidation of the brand's advertising.

The account had been at Bcom3 Group's D'Arcy Masius Benton & Bowles, New York.

Saatchi previously handled Pampers in Europe and many other countries outside the U.S. D'Arcy also handled the brand in Asia.

"This decision in no way reflects D'Arcy's work on our business, but rather a desire to manage the Pampers brand globally," said Deb Henretta, P&G's president of global baby care, in a prepared statement.

Moving to a global agency will streamline decision making, said P&G Global Marketing Officer Jim Stengel. Mr. Stengel was formerly vice president of marketing and strategy in the baby care business and had worked extensively with Saatchi on Pampers in Europe.

P&G said the move is consistent with its efforts over the past several years to align global brands with a single agency.
