Levi’s is conducting a PR review across Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, according to the Holmes Report. The review includes a number of firms that the company has worked with. The Levi’s roster of existing firms includes European agency, Exposure, and Edelman, which handles corporate PR. In an effort to consolidate, firms that the company works with will have to repitch their business. The company just named Wunderman its first global digital agency after a review. That work was also previously handled by a number of firms.
