The agency picked up the account following a shoot-out against Shine, 3 Monkeys Communications and Frank PR.
‘Our focus will be on delivering a campaign to reinforce Petplan's overall communications strategy positioning them as ‘the pet people',' said Porter Novelli head of consumer marketing Shilpa Saul.
