Here’s Some Clarification on Havas NY Cuts

We’ve received several tips, always in the doomsday form, from every which way or another (and from different IP’s, mind you) regarding cuts at Havas New York. Well, sources familiar with the matter confirm that five people across departments were let go at the agency’s Big Apple branch. We’ve been told that the cuts were not directly related to any client issues but is merely a “readjustment” of staff (so, yeah, no word if this were a direct effect of its ties with Beam). But, yeah, from what we’ve been told, the agency has hired approximately 20 people in the last month and if you recall, has also added Sean Lyons and Vin Farrell to the mix from R/GA. We’ll keep you posted if we hear anything more.
