Leo Burnett Cuts Some Staff

leoburnett1287069279There’s not a whole lot to go on here, but to address the numerous tips we’ve received over the past 36 hours, yes, it’s been confirmed that Leo Burnett has had to make some cuts. From what we’ve told, the agency has had to let go of “less than 2 percent of its US staff” today, which the Leo camp says accounts for “less than 40 people.” There’s no further comment from Leo Burnett as of yet including reasons for the reduction, but we’ll let you know if we hear more.
