iCrossing Cuts Some Staff

Sources familiar with the matter confirm that Hearst-owned digital agency iCrossing has cut some staff in its New York headquarters. From what we’ve been told, six people across departments were let go last week as part of “a realignment of skills based on client needs.” This in turn accounts for less than one percent of the agency’s 900+ staffers across 18 global offices (the Salt Lake City branch, if you recall, closed earlier this year).

Among those cut were Tarah Feinberg, who’s still listed in the “People” section of the iCrossing site and has served as head of its Live Media Studio unit, as well as Rachel Pasqua, who’s had two stints at the agency, spending six years in all serving as VP, mobile. As for Feinberg (pictured), the now-former senior director at iCrossing spent a couple of years serving as VP/executive director at Big Fuel prior to joining the former agency.
