Dailey Makes Some Cuts

Details are vague on this one, but we have received confirmation that IPG-owned, West Hollywood, CA-based agency Dailey has had to cut some staff in the wake of longtime client TurboTax launching a creative review earlier this month (the agency has chosen not to defend).

In a statement, Dailey president/CEO Tom Lehr tells us, “Yesterday, we said goodbye to a few wonderful people, which we hate to do. As with any agency, business ebbs and flows, and we must be responsible in maintaining appropriate staffing levels.” Lehr wouldn’t go into specifics including approximate numbers or departments affected, but we’ve been told the layoffs were not “massive” like tipsters were telling us this week. Below is one of the more recent TurboTax from Dailey, which had been working with the brand for well over a decade.
