Office equipment giant Pitney Bowes has jettisoned Pielle, its agency of

10 years, in favour of Marbles.



Pitney Bowes appointed Henley-on-Thames-based Marbles last week after

seeing presentations from several agencies (PR Week, 20 September). The

American-owned firm, which has half of the UK franking machine market,

had previously rejected an earlier tranche of five firms.



Tony Dalton, Pitney Bowes’s head of European corporate communications,

said Marbles had offered the most creative and cost-effective solution.

‘Marbles has a vital role to play in supporting our UK and marketing

needs,’ he said.



Pitney Bowes employs 32,000 staff world-wide, with the UK being its

largest European operation.
