Frontenac Buys National System
Mark Mantovani will continue as CEO, according to Frontenac, Chicago. Former Wunderman chairman/CEO Jay Bingle was named chairman.
National System, St. Louis, offers services such as co-operative advertising compliance, marketing communications, digital asset management, direct mail and various creative advertising services to a stable of large, market-leading clients in the automotive, wine and spirits and retail/restaurant industries.
Mantovani said the transaction would give National System the resources to "further penetrate the automotive and retail/restaurant industries and to expand our business to adjacent industries."
