@marklives so it’s true. Quite sad to see them move. #DraftFCB have been with them from the beginning of mobile in SA. Iconic work.

DraftFCB has lost the Vodacom account after decades of sterling service. I just hope this isn’t change for the sake of change.

Kelvin Jonck ‏@KelvinJonck

Fresh CEO. Was bound to happen. “@marklives: Vodacom is moving its advertising account from Draftfcb. More details soon on Marklives.”
