Tribal DDB Dallas Changes, Et Cetera

The Dallas arm of Tribal DDB let about 10 folks go, we’re told. But there were other changes as well. Here’s what we’re hearing:

&#151 Like we said, there were 10 people let go including CD Braden Bickle.

&#151 ACD Matt Smith has been promoted to a GCD.

&#151 ACD Darrel Loden and Art Director Matt Rand were made CDs.

&#151 The creative department has been rearranged. Now they’re in teams. Not sure what they weer before.

&#151 Outside the creative department, layoffs include: strategy, ROI, project management, and account services.

&#151 Hmm, we’re told the New York account team was merged into the New York office.

&#151 New York, San Francisco, Chicago and LA are all slated for layoffs. We’re aware of SF, but hadn’t heard anything about LA/Chicago until right now.

Update: Sources familiar with the matter tell me New York is not going to have lafyoffs. That shop has some business wins of late, including Ciba Vision. Another is yet to be announced.
