Cisco Systems has chosen Band and Brown to handle its new
pan-European corporate PR account. Text 100 and Firefly also pitched for
the business (PR Week, 28 November). Cisco has simultaneously ended its
contract for pan-European product PR with Text 100, estimated at pounds
300,000. Text co-ordinated product launches with Cisco’s European
agencies including Mmd in Hungary and Finck and Fuchs in Germany. This
work has been taken in-house. Band and Brown will target pan-European
business and computer press.
