Betting account up for review

William Hill is understood to be talking to agencies about its advertising services, which have previously been handled by Leeds-based Poulters.

It is not yet clear whether the review has any connection with what is expected to be the imminent redundancy to Poulters managing director Gary McCall, who has been put on gardening leave by the agency’s parent company Bezier.

Neither the agency or client could be reached to clarify the William Hill situation.

Meanwhile, Wakefield-based Bezier is set to complete the acquisition of Coutts Retail Communications (CRC).

CRC has a turnover of circa £17million and employs 130 staff operating from sites in London, Thurrock, Paris and Bielefeld.
