Those people say Publicis Media’s Zenith is the incumbent agency on JP Morgan Chase’s offline U.S. planning and buying business.
A spokesperson for Zenith declined comment, but one person says the agency will compete in the review. If the agency wins, it will expand its partnership with the client by picking up the entire global scope of the business.
It’s unclear what other agencies are participating. The person close to the matter says JP Morgan Chase currently handles all digital media duties in-house and works with various different agencies on its global account so it seems the company is seeking to consolidate the entirety of its business with one partner.
Last year, Chase spent $287.8 million on measured media in the U.S., an 18 percent increase over 2018, according to Ad Age’s Datacenter.
