Business data giant Financial Times Information has signed up Henley-on-
Thames agency Marbles.
The firm’s General Business Information division, which includes FT
Profile, FT Discovery, the Broadcast Monitoring Company and the Business
Research Centre, had previously used Infopress on a project basis.
The company, which is soon to launch Internet versions of its software-
based Profile and Discovery business information services, hired Marbles
this week, without a pitch, after coming into contact with the agency
via a supplier.
The account will be led by Jan Stannard, Marbles joint managing
director, and agency account director Brooke Simon.
Pearson-owned Financial Times Information is based in London, with 25
global offices, including regional headquarters in Asia Pacific and the
US. It has 1,650 employees and last year reported revenues of more than
pounds 80 million.
