Pirelli names Testa to $30 mil account

Published on .

Pirelli in September will move its estimated $30 million global tire account from Young & Rubicam to Armando Testa, the family-owned Italian ad agency that is revamping its European network. The new Testa network is run from London by Director of Operations David Gray, formerly Y&R's worldwide managing director for the Pirelli business. Turin-based Testa dumped its affiliations with local agencies in Europe and has opened five offices outside Italy this year, but has no shops outside Europe.
