The Omaha, Neb.-based marketer named MediaVest its media agency of record effective immediately. The agency will handle, among other things, strategic planning and buying duties.
"MediaVest's consumer-centric approach to planning, coupled with a superior buying capability, played an important role in our decision," Robert Haverback, VP-brand management and advertising, said in a statement.
WPP's OgilvyOne continues to handle creative duties, and [email protected] continues to handle digital advertising efforts. Karsh Hagan, meanwhile, handles both creative and media duties on TD Ameritrade's institutional business.
Ameritrade in 2007 spent $157 million on domestic measured media, according to TNS Media Intelligence.
The win is the second big one for the agency in a matter of weeks; it was recently awarded a new global media assignment for drug maker Schering-Plough worth at least $226 million in spending domestically.
