Publicis Kaplan Thaler Makes Some Cuts

We’ve received confirmation that the New York-based operation that is now known as Publicis Kaplan Thaler has had to let go of some staff this week. Here’s a quick statement from the agency: “”As our industry continues to transform and our clients’ needs evolve, restructuring is sometimes necessary to position ourselves at the forefront of these changes, and to invest in the long-term growth of our people and agency. We have consolidated some internal resources to strengthen our operating efficiencies. These changes affect less than 2% of the staff.”

Sources familiar with the matter add that Publicis Kaplan Thaler, which works with clients ranging from L’Oreal Paris to Pfizer to P&G, currently houses approximately 700 staffers. So, if our math is accurate, that equals around 14 people that were affected–though now word yet on specific departments involved.
