The agency will lose its traditional advertising responsibilities on Jose Cuervo and Cuervo 1800 tequila brands. The brands could move to UDV roster agencies J. Walter Thompson USA, New York or Leo Burnett Co., Chicago, with a decision by yearend. Grybauskas will continue to handle interactive advertising and special projects for the brands.
