JWT Makes Some Cuts in the ATL

We’ve received confirmation from sources close to the matter that there were 10 people or so let go at JWT Atlanta last week. From what spies are telling us, the cuts are part of CEO Rob Quish‘s efforts to “clean house” at JWT’s ATL office, though we’re trying to find out if there were other reasons for the move. If you remember, this isn’t the first time that Quish tried to shake things up in Atlanta since joining as chief exec back in April. We’ll keep you posted when we find out more.

Update: We’ve been told that the cuts were made across multiple departments and JWT Atlanta is “shifting [project management] into delivery depts not shutting it down.”
