Saatchi NY Makes Some Cuts

We’ve been told by sources familiar with the matter that “changes are happening this week” at Saatchi & Saatchi NY, which in turn means the agency has had to let go of some staff. As noted, it’s not network-wide, but sources in the know let us know that it’s “less than one-percent” of the Saatchi network as a whole and this has specifically affected the agency’s New York crew (which accounts for approximately 400 of the staff count from what we’ve been told). As per usual, we’ve been told that this move is part of “business and the needs of…clients” thus begets for a need of “some changes.” We’re hearing from tipster that 15-20 staffers across departments were affected. We’ll keep you posted if and when we hear more.
