FCB wins Hoover

Published on .

Hoover Co., North Canton, Ohio, selected FCB Worldwide, Chicago, to handle its estimated $25 million account, after the vacuum cleaner marketer yanked the work from Euro RSCG Tatham in August. FCB was considered a long shot because Hoover has close bonds with Ralph Rydholm, who shepherded the account before retiring as Tatham CEO and who's now a consultant to J. Walter Thompson USA. Another strong contender was Leo Burnett USA, which has worked with Hoover parent Maytag Corp. for years. Jones-Lundin Associates, Chicago, handled the review for Hoover. Tatham handled the Hoover business for 11 years of strong sales but wasn't invited to participate in the review.
