We’re still seeking details regarding the matter, but a source informs us that the writing was on the wall. No word yet on just how many people are without work today, or if more cuts are set to come.

Rasmussen, for one, only joined the agency in November, 2008. Previously he was an ECD at R/GA New York.

Update: An agency representative sent the following statement. “In response to the challenges of the current economic climate, and in an ongoing effort to ensure the future financial health of our agency, BBH New York has made the difficult decision to reduce our staff by 12.”
