BBDO Suffers Chrysler’s Cutbacks

A representative from BBDO told me earlier today that the Detroit office has indeed undergone a round of layoffs that hit 25 employees where it hurts. You know this, but President Obama cut Chrysler’s planned marketing spend from $134 million to $55, and we’re told that’s the cause for the cuts. We haven’t heard anything to the contrary.

Also on BBDO news, the Atlanta office just got around to letting 30 folks go home. This isn’t a new round, part of the last one, which is linked below.
