Notes: Ad organization True North Communications and Interpublic Group of Cos. reached agreement in March 2001 for the sale of True North to Interpublic for $2.1 billion in Interpublic stock. The negotations took place after TN's leading agency network FCB Worldwide lost the $1.8 billion Chrysler Group account (Chrysler corporate and Chrysler and Jeep brands) in late 2000. That business accounted for 9% of TN revenues and about 25% of its profit. True North laid off about 150 employees related to its loss of Chrysler, although not included in that number were about 200 FCB employees hired by Omnicom for its Pentamark unit.True North is a composite of FCB Worldwide and Bozell Group networks, and agency Temerlin McClain, True North Diversified Companies ("other TN shops" in this profile), the PR unit BSMG Worldwide, and minority ownership in Modem Media and the German agency, Springer & Jacoby. TN also operates TN Media and KSL Media. TN acquired in October 2000 Genus Media, London, the parent of MBS Media and Expert Media, specialist in media planning and buying. Genus operates as an autonomous unit of TN Media. The media buying by MBS was combined with that of Banks Hoggins O'Shea/FCB, London. BSMG acquired in November 2000 Square Mile Holdings in London, a financial and corporate PR agency now operating as Square Mile/BSMG Worldwide.

Notes: Bozell Group is a consolidation of brand Bozell consisting of Bozell-named offices in New York, Chicago, Omaha and Silicon Valley; Bozell Kamstra offices in Minneapolis, Pittsburgh, Boston, Dallas and Florida; Avrett, Free & Ginsberg, SixtyFootSpider, Howard Merrell & Partners, acquired in 2000, and 1999 acquisitions, Stein Rogan & Partners and Berenter Greenhouse & Webster. Bozell made several changes in its domestic offices in 2000, opening a Bozell Kamstra shop in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. (a transfer of direct operations from sister TN agency, Marketing Drive Worldwide), and shuttering its Cleveland office after the loss of an account and moving the rest of the business to Bozell Kamstra/Minneapolis. Bozell Kamstra Dallas will close in December when its contract ends with the U.S. National Guard, which the office currently handles through a subcontractor. The Dallas office was shaken earlier in the year with the loss of the U.S. Air Force account amounting to two-thirds of the office's billings.

SixtyFootSpider then moved its headquarters to Minneapolis. The Dallas office of SixtyFootSpider will close this year and the remaining accounts shift to Minneapolis. The closure is tied to Bozell's loss of the U.S. Air Force account to GSDM, Austin. The USAF was SixtyFootSpider Dallas' biggest account.

Then later in October S&J was awarded creative duties valued at $30 million for two Mercedes-Benz car models, the C-Class Sportcoup‚ and the C-Class T-Model, both being introduced in key markets worldwide in 2001.
