Grey NY Leadership Cuts Straight to the Chase When it Comes to Marriott

By now, you’ve probably read or heard about the news that Grey New York has nabbed the Marriott Hotels & Resorts business, which resided with McGarryBowen for nearly a decade. Anyhow, without any pretense, pomp and/or circumstance, Grey NY prez/CCO Tor Myhren and managing director Michael Houston relayed the good news to staff like this:

“We’re going to keep this short and sweet.

Grey just won the Marriott Hotels and Resorts business, beating out mcgarrybowen and JWT in the final round.

Congratulations, people. This is huge.

The news will hit the press shortly.

Stay tuned for celebration details…

Tor and Michael”

Well, the news definitely did hit the press, but thanks to Marriott’s stellar PR work, it didn’t hit our inbox til late in the evening. No need to repost the reasons why Marriott tapped Grey, but the agency did beat out McGB and JWT for the biz. Meanwhile, Marriott’s agency relationships with MEC, Anomaly, Team One and other creative and specialized agencies throughout its global operations were not affected in this review.
