We Hear: Y&R Taking BMO Harris Biz?

After what had to be a tough month to endure, the Y&R network could use some uplift and since the beginning of December, we’ve been hearing that agency’s Chicago office has locked yet another account, which happens to be BMO Harris Bank. We haven’t received confirmation from the agency yet, but since Dec. 6, we’ve received pretty straightforward tips like these: “Y&R chicago awarded AOR for BMO Harris” or “BMO Harris won by Y&R Chicago. Announcement coming soon.”

If true, this marks yet another win for Y&R Chicago CCO Bob Winter, who in just 15 months on the job, has led a team that’s picked up several accounts including Dave & Buster’s, Famous Footwear and the YMCA. Nearly five months ago, Chicago-based Harris Bank, as it was known pre-merger, launched a review for its creative account, which was handled by Element79 since 2005. As the tipsters hinted, we hear that some sort of announce is expected within the next few days. We’ll keep you posted.
