We Hear: Infiniti No Longer with TBWA

*EMBARGOED* 2014 Infinti Q50

To follow up on a story Adweek posted a whole three weeks ago (we know, we know), we did receive word today that TBWA\Chiat Day will officially no longer serve as the AOR for Infiniti after more than fifteen years.

In late June we heard that a total of seven agencies were chasing the account, and two weeks later sources told Adweek that CP+B, BBH, GS&P and Anomaly were the only ones left standing.

On an interesting side note, General Motors poached Infiniti CEO Johan de Nysschen earlier this month in the middle of the review–a move that certainly disrupted the process a bit.

In other words, expect news on which agency won the business to arrive shortly.

UPDATE: The pitch is ongoing and TBWA will continue working with Infiniti through the end of this year.
