P&O’D Cuts a Handful

pod_logoWell, the number’s slightly less than what we were hearing on the Spy line, but sources familiar with the matter confirm that San Francisco-based agency Pereira & O’Dell has had to cut six staffers. While we were hearing that financial issues might have played a role in the cuts, our sources tell us otherwise, saying that it was nothing more than “adjustments being made” and that no specific department was targeted. Current headcount stands at 190 at P&O’D, which has had a pretty productive last six months, from assuming lead creative duties on the Fox Sports 1 account to expanding ops in Brazil to dishing out efforts for Intel/Toshiba, Skype and its newest client, Airbnb.
