R/GA Makes Some Cuts

It appears that the numbers on the Spy line basically checked out as an R/GA spokesperson has confirmed that the IPG-owned agency, which now houses 13 global offices, has had to reduce staff this week. Here’s the statement that pretty much sums it up:

“R/GA’s growth and the expansion of offices have led to the creation of a new model in New York, which has been broken out into eight groups that function as independent agencies. The implementation of this model has led to a realignment of staff, and 23 positions across departments and capabilities in the New York office will be affected. This reduction represents less than 2% of our staff. We regret to see these talented staff members depart, and hope that we’ll see some of them return in the future.

R/GA is growing in New York and expanding internationally, which shows that our movement to a group model is working. These necessary changes ensure that R/GA will continue to maintain the highest standards of creative work and client support.”
