MEplusYOU Makes Some Cuts (Updated)

It’s been some time since we’ve heard word from Dallas-based MEplusYOU–formerly known as imc2–but we’ve now received confirmation that the digital agency has had to make cuts this week. A spokesperson tells us, “The agency had to make the difficult decision to reduce staff. They are talented and passionate people and will be greatly missed.” The MEPlusYou camp wouldn’t comment/clarify any further in terms of approximate numbers and/or departments affected, but multiple tipsters are telling that 30-40 were let go including top creatives. We’ll keep you posted if and when we hear more on MEplusYOU, which last we recall underwent some restructuring last fall.

Update: Seeing as MEplusYOU isn’t commenting any further at the moment, we’ll go to the folks on the Spy line, who are now telling us that mostly tech was affected by the reductions along with a couple of creatives. The numbers we’re hearing now are slightly under 30.
