Leo Burnett, an ad company, will replace Wunderman Thompson as the Bharti Airtel’s new entity for taking care of its B2B and B2C services, ET reported on Wednesday. Earlier, Wunderman Thompson handled the business for more than ten years.

The responsibility to handle the ad business, which includes: below-the-line (BTL) activities and circle marketing campaigns, and others; was mandated after to Leo Burnett’s New Delhi office after a multi-agency pitch.  The account sized is pegged somewhere between RS 5-6 crore, estimates suggest.
