But crude has firmed up in the last couple of days.Before the long drawn pause, petrol and diesel fell by 22 paise and 23 paise per litre respectively on March 30 in the wake global softening of oil prices.

Summary List Placement Hi and welcome to the Insider Advertising newsletter. I'm Lucia Moses, deputy editor, and this week in advertising and media news: Companies wrestle with burnout , reopening ; Crispin Porter Bogusky has a new CEO; And new stats on TikTok users. First, if you got this newsletter forwarded, make sure to sign up for your own here . Agencies consider the office of the future Going back to the office is on everyone's minds as vaccination rates rise.

That poses a messy issue for companies that will have to accommodate hybrid workforces to make sure remote people don't get left out and teams keep working smoothly, to say nothing of addressing burnout, Lindsay Rittenhouse reported. From her story: [WPP CEO Mark] Read said 5% to 10% of employees have gone back to most of WPP's offices and expects more to return this summer, though there is no set date or mandate for reopening.

Malina previously served as president of GSD&M, an Austin, Texas-based agency owned by MDC rival Omnicom. CPB and its creative leader Alex Bogusky gained fame in the early 2000s for helping Domino's Pizza turn its flailing business around and creating Burger King's surreal “Subservient Chicken” ad campaign, but current and former employees have said CPB's future is uncertain.

The agency's other clients include American Airlines, Hotels.com, and Veterans United. CPB's parent company is also undergoing a significant restructuring.
