  4. A Whole New Marketing Ecosystem
  • Holding company deals: Should you, shouldn’t you, what works, what doesn’t? As you may know we have just completed the “Pitch of The Year” in the USA successfully concluding McDonald’s Review. We are also helping two other clients review holding company arrangements. Some reading below:
