Doner Cuts Staff

We certainly hope this isn’t this the prevailing theme today, but we’ve received confirmation that now it’s Doner has had to cut staff. Unfortunately, unlike what tipsters have been telling us, the reductions weren’t just limited to the Cleveland office, either. We’ve received word from sources familiar with the matter that the MDC-owned agency has cut staff across the network, which also includes in both Cleveland and its Detroit HQ (Update: The Los Angeles was actually not affected).

A Doner spokesperson tells us,”While it is never a pleasant thing to do, we recently made some reductions in staff which have impacted less than 3% of our employees.  These reductions come as we continue to invest in our creative, digital and strategic talent as part of our continuous effort to best align our resources with the work we’re producing for our clients.”
