Sources: ConEd Biz Transfers from Shuttering Arnell to The Gate

Yesterday came reports that Sara Arnell, CEO of Omnicom’s once-heralded Arnell Group, which was founded by her ex-husband Peter Arnell (read interesting post-Tropicana logo fiasco piece here), made the decision to close the agency’s doors for good. One of the items of note from the Crain’s report about the shuttering yesterday was that the business for Arnell’s last remaining AOR client, utility/power brand ConEdison (sometimes the bane of many a New Yorker’s existence), was being shifted elsewhere.

Well, sources familiar with the matter tell us that following a review, The Gate Worldwide, which has office space from New York to London to Singapore will taking over on what we’ve been told is the $15-20 million ConEd account. From what we’re hearing, The Gate beat out the likes of SS+K and Cramer-Krasselt in the review, which was launched in December and actually wrapped up last month.
