We can’t confirm numbers or names–though we’re hearing some creative higher-ups and staff in L.A. were affected–but we’ve received confirmation that the agency now known as Lowe Campbell Ewald has made some cuts (we were told last Thursday and nearly 10 staffers were affected in L.A.). Here’s a quick statement from recently installed LCE CEO Jim Palmer: “Our industry is one of constant change, and we must routinely review where we are now and what we must do to stay competitive down the road. We are realigning our resources to best serve the current and future needs of our clients. Saying goodbye to our dedicated teammates is hard on all of us and without question the most difficult part of this business.” We’ll keep you posted if we hear more.
