MEC lands £26m RAF and Navy business

Royal Navy: MEC wins planning account
Royal Navy: MEC wins planning account

MEC has won the £26 million media planning accounts for the Royal Air Force and the Royal Navy.

The agency picked up the two briefs from the Crown Commercial Service after competitive pitches against the incumbents, Manning Gottlieb OMD (which handled the RAF) and Carat (which oversaw the Navy), as well as its WPP siblings Mindshare and MediaCom.

From 1 April, MEC will begin working alongside Engine, which was awarded the combined creative business in October last year.

The win comes at the start of a new leadership at the agency under co-chief executives Stuart Bowden and Jason Dormieux, who called it "a real coup for MEC".

They added: "We’ll be working closely with both services and No10 to ensure our campaigns attract the very best talent in the country."
