HONG KONG: Mars(玛氏食品) has replaced D'Arcy with Grey as the agency handling the creative work for its sugar account in Hong Kong and China.

Grey, which already services Mars' Pedigree dog food account, clinched the sugar business – which includes the well-known Skittles(彩虹糖) brand – after making a presentation to demonstrate the strength of its marketing knowledge for the two markets.

Grey Hong Kong and China chairman and chief executive officer Viveca Chan(陈一枬) said: "The presentation's aim was to demonstrate that we have a good understanding of the local China and Hong Kong markets as well as possess unique marketing insights. And we also showed that we have a steady team."

The account move comes just two months after Francis Cleetus quit as group creative director at D'Arcy to take up the post of creative director at Doe-Anderson Advertising, a creative hotshop in the United States. Cleetus was one of the driving forces behind the Skittles' Greater China campaign, which had "Fruit with Attitude" as its tagline.

However, despite the loss, D'Arcy remains in charge of the Mars chocolate and catfood accounts. The media account, currently with D'Arcy, will likely go up for pitch soon.
