The win was the result of the first integrated pitch from the company, and is MiC's fourth most-clicked story of the year.

As 2011 comes to a close, Media in Canada is counting down the stories that got the most notice this year.

Our number four story of the year was the details behind how five MDC Partner agencies teamed up for a joint pitch which won them the account to handle Target Canada’s launch north of the border in 2013.

Miles Nadal, CEO of MDC Partners, told MiC the win was the result of the first integrated pitch from the holding group.

“We are privileged to be associated with Target Canada’s entry into the country,” he said. “It is an important win with a phenomenal brand.”
