Zenith gets a bigger seat at Publicis Groupe table

Publicis Groupe’s completion of its acquisition of data marketing firm Epsilon lifted Zenith’s performance and capabilities in 2019. The agency’s data chops meant it played an important role in the Groupe’s mammoth Disney win, but did pull it away from local business. There were fewer account wins and a couple of painful losses, but it maintains it was a necessary sacrifice to win one of the biggest accounts of the year.
