SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Symantec Corporation (NASDAQ: SYMC) today announced that Grey San Francisco has been selected as the global advertising agency of record for the acclaimed Norton™ brand.

Milan Martin, president of Grey San Francisco, said, "We're thrilled  to partner with the Symantec team to help refresh the Norton brand and establish it as the leader in information and identity protection for consumers and small businesses."  Hired to lead Grey in SF in May of last year, Martin continued, "We've got big aspirations for our San Francisco office, and we're honored that Symantec saw the uniqueness and benefit of our new agency model here on the West Coast."

A new integrated global advertising campaign for Norton is slated for spring 2014.  Godfrey Q in San Francisco retains creative duties for Symantec, which includes identity and naming.
