Layoffs at Leo Burnett Chicago

Leo-Burnett-logo

We’ve just confirmed, as per your tips, that a round of layoffs took place at Leo Burnett Chicago this week.

A spokesperson tells us that the agency had to let “less than 10 of our friends and colleagues” go in a one-time staffing shift; no details as to who was affected, though some creatives have lost their jobs. You may recall that this move follows a larger series of layoffs in February.

Again, we have no official word on the who or the why. In other recent Leo Burnett news, the Chicago-based McDonald’s account changed hands as the agency continued to produce work for clients like Coors Light Canada.
