Clorox Co. has consolidated its domestic and international ad account at DDB
Worldwide, San Francisco, by pulling some $55 million to $75 million in billings from Y&R Advertising, San Francisco. The move is effective Jan. 1. DDB previously had $150 million in Clorox billings; Y&R loses the Brita, Hidden Valley and Kingsford brands. The consolidation also affects Hispanic and interactive advertising, and media buying. Clorox Diamond Communications, a joint venture of Y&R and DDB, will continue some media buying under new DDB management.
