JWT Atlanta Makes Some Cuts

jwtlogoNo exact numbers have been divulged but sources familiar with the matter confirm that JWT’s Atlanta office has had to part ways with “a handful” of employees this week. From what we’ve been told by sources, the key reason for the cuts is sequestration, specifically the fact that most government accounts faced a reduction in allocated funding in 2014 due to the automatic slashing of budgets. JWT ATL has handled a couple of government accounts (U.S. Marine Corps, for one) and has felt the impact of the sequestration. If we find out more, we’ll keep you posted.
