W+K Makes Some Cuts in NY

Two weeks after Wieden+Kennedy made some cuts in its Portland HQ, the residual effects of the Target loss continue as the agency confirms that it’s now let go of a few staffers in its New York office. Here’s a note from a W+K spokesperson:

“Yes, we did have to part ways with a small number of valued employees from a variety of disciplines within our New York office. It is not easy to say goodbye to these co-workers and friends, but the Target loss affected us as well, and we had to make some adjustments to our staffing that reflect the loss in revenue.”

Sources familiar with the matter add that the number was less than ten and there will be no more layoffs in the foreseeable future.
