Ameritech Corp. lead creative agency Ammirati Puris Lintas, Chicago, said it is looking for opportunities in the acquisition plan disclosed today that would make Ameritech part of San Antonio, Texas-based SBC Communications. "I would hope that it [the merger] would give us the opportunity to expand our relationship with Ameritech," said Ammirati Chicago President-CEO Brad Brinegar. "At this point, it's business as usual...We're still on our timetable of transferring the account from New York to Chicago by the end of May." Cliff Freeman & Partners, New York, handles Ameritech's paging and cellular business. It had no comment. Carat ICG, Chicago, handles media on the $100 million-plus account.
