PwC’s agencies include Initiative Media, part of the Interpublic Group, which holds the planning and buying business.

The company also uses The Gate, a full-service agency that is owned by Media Square, for its business-to-business work, and CCHM:Ping, an integrated agency that specialises in financial and professional services.

The company had a turnover of &£1.8bn in the UK last year, and has close to 15,000 partners and staff in the UK.
