NEW YORK, July 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Wunderman, one of the largest advertising agencies in the world, is upgrading to Uber for Business as the preferred transportation option for its people in the United States. As the first marketing agency to partner officially with Uber on a national level, Wunderman is ensuring cost-savings and improved service for its people.
"Wunderman required an on-demand service that would be reliable and affordable," said Mark Read, CEO, Wunderman. "Our people deserve the comfort and convenience that Uber offers them."
New York will be the first of Wunderman's 19 offices in the U.S. to ride with Uber.

"The change is in part a reflection of how our colleagues live, as well as work," added Read. "The Uber for Business offer, the intuitive technology, even the cars themselves, fit with who we are as an agency and the type of work we do for our clients."
