Compaq may shelve plan to consolidate $200 mil account

Published on .

Compaq Computer Corp. for now may table a proposal to consolidate its $200 million account at an incumbent agency because executives are deadlocked over whether to hire U.S. shop Ammirati Puris Lintas, New York, or European agency Bates Worldwide, London, according to people close to Compaq. It remains unclear whether Compaq will stick with the status quo or stage a review if it can't decide on Ammirati or Bates. Ad Director Kathleen Harrington was unavailable at press time.
