Texas Sized Layoffs in 2 Dallas Agencies

Two notable Texas agencies have let some people go, we’re hearing. Without dragging it out too far, know that both these agencies have lost bits and pieces of business &#151 like so many other shops &#151 over the last few months.

&#151 TM let 35 go today. Most recently, they lost the Nationwide creative and media planning business to McKinney.

&#151 The Richards Group has slowly laid off about 100 employees, we’re told. All this despite retaining the $50 million Home Depot account and putting together Hyundai’s Assurance Program, which has been parroted by pretty much every big automaker.

In other bad Texas news, GSD&M didn’t win the BMW media account.
