McCann Erickson Manchester has lost its grip on the Durex and Scholl advertising accounts after brand owner Reckitt Benckiser decided to move UK and global ad duties into its lead agency Euro RSCG Worldwide.
McCann Manchester has worked on the condom company's UK account for more than a decade but its position has been in doubt ever since ReckittBenckiseracquired Durex and Scholl owner SSL in the summer.
McCann said it would continue to work with SSL over the "next few months" to ensure a "smooth and efficient transfer" of the accounts.
In a statement given to The Drum, an agency spokesperson said: “We are tremendously proud of the work we have undertaken for SSL and its key brands in a relationship that extends over more than ten years.
"Our health and wellbeing business already has a robust new business pipeline with a number of strong opportunities already identified and progressing well for 2011."
