m/SIX secures Sainsbury’s media account

Sainsbury’s 22-year partnership with PHD has come to a close as WPP and The&Partnership’s joint project m/SIX has seized its media account.

Campaign reports that the account, worth up to £100m, was put up for review in secrecy following the retailer’s takeover of Argos, via the £1.4bn acquisition of Home Retail Group in 2016.

The retailer is making a habit of breaking away from long-time partners, it ended a 35-year relationship with AMV BBDO last year. It instead opted for the services of Wieden + Kennedy.

The Drum has reached out to Sainsbury’s and m/SIX for more information on the closed pitch process and what the new business will entail.
