MediaCom scoops £425m Sky media account across Europe

After landing the account, estimated to be worth in excess of £400m, the WPP-owned agency will handle media buys in the UK and Ireland in addition to lead markets like Germany, Austria and Spain. It will work with Sky’s recently appointed marketing and corporate affairs chief Debbie Klein who joined from marcomms group Engine.

The Sky win will be a fillip for WPP whose chief executive, Sir Martin Sorrell, is currently facing an independent investigation over his personal conduct.
