New Zealand Tourism Board ousts Saatchi from $27 mil account

Published on .

The New Zealand Tourism Board fired Saatchi & Saatchi from its scandal-plagued $27 million account the week of March 8. The scandal centered on concerns that Jenny Shipley, the New Zealand prime minister who faces re-election in November, and Kevin Roberts, Saatchi's chairman and a New Zealander, could use the ad campaign to help her re-election.
