Loss shutters Lowe Lintas office

Published on .

Lowe Lintas & Partners Worldwide, which has lost its $85 million Ameritech business due to its parent SBC Communications' continuing account consolidation, will close its Chicago service office May 31. Ameritech is believed to be heading to GSD&M, Austin, Texas, which recently won the telco's media buying account. Lowe Lintas' Chicago office was established to handle Ameritech. Some of the office's 50 employees will participate in a new Chicago-based joint venture between the agency and promo shop Zipatoni Co., St. Louis. The venture will be called Lowe Lintas Zipatoni.
