Rana Reeves, founder of John Doe, said: "Absolut has an impeccable creative track record; we cannot wait to get our hands on this brand and add to its long heritage of standout WOW campaigns – they are one of the original brand innovators when it comes to interactions in culture."

The consumer public relations role for Absolut at Pernod Ricard was held by PagetBaker for seven years.
