LONDON--Everything Everywhere, the telco giant that owns Orange and T-Mobile, is searching for corporate PR support, less than a year after consolidating its comms business with three firms.
The Holmes Report understands that the company has invited a couple of agencies in London to contend for the brief, which covers corporate communications and analyst relations.
Everything Everywhere awarded its corporate PR business to Weber Shandwick and GolinHarris last year, as part of the IPG duo's successful joint effort to land the bulk of the company's comms activity. Last year’s review also saw Nelson Bostock win consumer PR duties for T-Mobile.
Everything Everywhere senior PR manager Chloe Graf told the Holmes Report that the new brief "is separate to the work that Golin Harris and Weber Shandwick are looking after for us."
"We’re keeping this RFP to a relatively small operation as some members of the team are already familiar with the two agencies we’re talking to from previous work.," said Graf, adding that GH and Weber Shandwick remain the retained corporate agency.
Separately, a number of international networks are believed to be actively engaged in Vodafone’s new hunt for a global B2B PR support.
