London Calling

According to The Wall Street Journal, Fallon London is exempt from the recent pains felt in Minneapolis.

Fallon’s London office, with 175 people, has won accounts in the past year including Wal-Mart Stores Inc.’s United Kingdom business, Cadbury Schweppes PLC and Eurostar Group. As a result, the office’s billings have doubled to £120 million, or about $245 million.

By contrast, the Minneapolis-based creative powerhouse has lost several big clients in recent years, including BMW, United Airlines and units of Citigroup.
