JWT Makes Some Cuts

From what we’ve been told by those in the know, JWT has had to let go of staff in both its Atlanta and New York offices. Nope, it wasn’t related to client loss, but client needs according to sources familiar with the matter. As far as numbers go, 10-15 have been let go including a handful of production staffers in Atlanta while the cuts in NYC ran across departments. And now, here’s a statement from the JWT camp:

“As we continue to reshape the agency, we are going to be investing in some roles and skill sets and reducing the number of roles in others. Sometimes, this means making tough decisions about retention and deployment of our people. We eliminated a small number of positions across the agency today, which is always difficult. Whenever possible, we are working closely with WPP to help find placements at our sister agencies in the network.”
