Notes: Omnicom Group includes three agency networks: BBDO Worldwide, DDB Worldwide Communications and TBWA Worldwide and a host of independent agencies that reside in its Diversified Agencies Services sector. These DAS shops are shown as "Other Omnicom Shops." Omnicom also owns media-services companies OMD Worldwide and PhD, and a battery of PR agencies including Porter Novelli International, Fleishman-Hillard, Ketchum and Brodeur Worldwide. Omnicom Group and ComVergIT Partners in 2000 invested $22 million for a "significant minority" in interactive-services concern Oyster Partners, London. This was Omnicom's first investment in an interactive company in Europe. Omnicom at mid-year 2000 took a substantial minority stake in several health-care Internet companies: Healthology and Caresoft, operators of consumer site theDailyApple.com; eMedicine.com and WorldMedicalLeaders.com, both aimed at physicians; and eResearch Technology, a clinical-trials site. Omnicom bought Steiner Sports Marketing, New York, and took an equity stake in Horrow Sports Ventures, Palm Beach, Fla., in the fall of 2000. Ketchum in February 2001 agreed to buy the Washington Group, a lobbying agency in Washington with revenue estimated at $4.8 million. It will operate under that name as part of the Ketchum Washington office. Michael Greenlees stepped down as president & CEO at TBWA Worldwide to take leadership at Omnicom's Communicade unit which cobbles together its various investments in interactive shops. Omnicom teamed with Pegasus Partners in April 2001 to form an e-services company to hold stakes in Agency.com, Organic and Razorfish "to maximize consolidation and other strategic opportunities." Omnicom is expected to contribute its minority stakes in these agencies to the new company. These stakes have slipped in value from a total of $1.3 billion in December '99 to $30 million this April.

Notes: The brand DDB Worldwide Communications includes the DDB-named shops in the U.S. and the DDB international network. Ken Kaess became successor-apparent to Keith Reinhard, chairman & CEO, in May '99 when he was named chairman of newly-formed worldwide operating committee. He had been president of DDB's North American operations. London agency Court Burkitt was bought by Omnicom in June 2000 and merged into DDB's Griffin Bacal office in London to form Burkitt DDB. DDB in 2000 merged its worldwide interactive agencies into Tribal DDB Worldwide, New York, focusing on online marketing, consulting and Web engineering. Merging units include DDB Digital, Hong Kong, New York, Singapore and Sydney; BMP InterAction, London; E-scape/Generator, Copenhagen; DDB Interactive, Paris; DDB Interactive, Madrid; and Heye New Media, Munich. DDB owns more than 80% of Tribal DDB. DDB's Griffin Bacal, New York, lost its dominant Hasbro account in December 2000, and cut its staff by two-thirds. Half of the departing employees were absorbed by parent agency DDB New York, which got the Hasbro account. DDB acquired in January 2001 a minority stake in Fathom, a marketing consultancy formed by two former DDB execs, Peter Groome and Tres McCullough.

TBWA and Hakuhodo created agency G1 Worldwide for Nissan Motor Co. in 2000, splitting the venture 50/50 worldwide. The joint effort is a part of Nissan's "one brand, one voice" revival plan announced last year by Nissan President Carlos Ghosn. Michael Greenlees stepped down as president & CEO of TBWA in March 2001 to become involved in the e-services strategy in Omnicom's Communicade division. Jean-Marie Dru, the president & CEO of TBWA's international operations, succeeded him. That executive change followed the departure in January 2001 of Robert Kuperman as president & CEO of TBWA Americas. He left to head up the New York office of sibling agency DDB Worldwide.
