Sources are reporting the Rustoleum advertising account has come back to Chicago. McGarryBowen/Chicago reportedly has won the business, which had been quietly put into review. Periscope/Minneapolis most recently had the account. Energy BBDO/Chicago was competing along with MB and Periscope for the business. The Rustoleum account had been based in Chicago as recently as 2006, when it was housed at the now-defunct Greenhouse shop.
McGarryBowen's Chicago office has been on a roll in recent months. The agency picked up the Maxwell House coffee account recently, the latest in a series of Kraft Foods brands the agency has added to its client roster. The agency also recently moved into new digs in the American Medical Association building. McGarry execs could not be immediately reached for comment.
