It’s Omnicom’s World, We Just Live In It


Luke O’Brien has a wonderful little story in Politico about the trials and tribulations of being on Russia’s PR team these days, and it’s worth a read if you have a bit of time to kill. But if you don’t have the time, I was intrigued by just the list of names that peppered the piece. Here you go:

Ketchum, the giant PR agency on the Russia account….turned to The Washington Group….owned by Omnicom….Alston & Bird….Clark & Weinstock, an Omnicom company….APCO Worldwide….Diversified Energy Communications Ltd….action-movie star Steven Seagal….Global Strategic Communications Group.

Someday, we will all work for Omnicom, with an occasional job on the side for Global Strategic Communications Group. It sounds lovely, doesn’t it? Almost like working for the dark side of a James Bond movie.
