It has been reported that in Australia, Pfizer recently awarded its media business to Ikon Group Sydney after a closed pitch. The agency takes over from incumbent Match Media.

Earlier this year in February, the pharmaceutical giant moved a portion of its media buying business to IPG Mediabrands in Hong Kong, including some pharmaceutical brands previously held by Mindshare. Brands in the shift included Viagra and Metamucil.
