Dailey Makes Some Cuts

Details are vague on this one, but we have received confirmation that IPG-owned, West Hollywood, CA-based agency Dailey has had to cut some staff in the wake of longtime client TurboTax launching a creative review earlier this month (the agency has chosen not to defend).

In a statement, Dailey president/CEO Tom Lehr tells us, “Yesterday, we said goodbye to a few wonderful people, which we hate to do. As with any agency, business ebbs and flows, and we must be responsible in maintaining appropriate staffing levels.” Lehr wouldn’t go into specifics including approximate numbers or departments affected, but we’ve been told the layoffs were not “massive” like tipsters were telling us this week. Below is one of the more recent TurboTax from Dailey, which had been working with the brand for well over a decade.

Don Lupo to Head Digital Production at Dailey

While we’re on the Deutsch LA tip today, thought we’d mention that its former VP, director of digital production Don Lupo has added the word “senior” to his title by joining up with IPG-owned, fellow LA-based shop Dailey. Lupo, who spent the past two years at Deutsch and worked on Volkswagen, HTC and PlayStation among other accounts, is “the perfect guy at the right time to help lead the rapid growth we’re experiencing in digital across all clients” according to Dailey president Tom Lehr.

Prior to Deutsch, Lupo spent over two years as senior interactive producer at DDB,  where he developed websites, ARGs and rich media campaigns for the likes of Activision, Epson and Wells Fargo. Now at Dailey, he will work on the digital side, of course , across the agency’s accounts including California Pizza Kitchen. Dailey, which handles strategy and creative for the 25-year-old restaurant chain, just broke a new OOH campaign for CPK, in fact. Its sister shop, Draftfcb Chicago, handles the Kitchen’s frozen pizza business.
