Mitsubishi Motor Sales of America, looking for one shop for its newly consolidated $65 million to $80 million regional dealer account, picked two in an apparent compromise with the six dealers on the 12-person review panel. Each of the 40 dealer groups will now chose between Grey/ Zimmerman
, the planned venture between Zimmerman & Partners, Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and Grey Advertising, Los Angeles; and Deutsch
, New York. Separately, Automotive News reports Mitsubishi Chief Operating Officer Richard Recchia, who hired Grey in 1985, is expected to step down the week of the 8th.
