Office Depot has tapped Interpublic Group’s McCann and UM as its advertising and media agencies of record, the retailer said on Tuesday.

Office Depot, the product of a merger between Office Depot and OfficeMax last November, began the cross-agency review this summer.

Pile and Company supported the search.

“McCann brings proven strategic and integrated marketing expertise that will help us build a strong communications platform to deliver innovative creative work that will resonate with our customers and help us stand apart in the marketplace,” said Mark Cosby, president of North America for Office Depot, in a statement.
