(Aug. 16, 2001) -- Northrup Grumman, Los Angeles, has awarded its estimated $7 million advertising account to Interpublic Group of Cos.' McCann-Erickson, Los Angeles.

The aerospace and defense industry company in recent years has begun to move into the commercial sector through acquisitions of software firms such as Logicon.

Ian McGregor, general manager, said the account could grow to as much as $10 million to $15 million in billings in the next few years.

Omnicom Group's BBDO West, Los Angeles, previously handled the account and dropped out of the review, which also included WPP Group's Ogilvy & Mather, New York, and E. J. White Company, Herndon, Va. -- Alice Z. Cuneo
