Y&R Chicago Makes Some Cuts

We’ve received confirmation that Y&R Chicago has cut seven staffers. From what spies are telling us, the reductions were made across departments including creative, planning and account. We’re still waiting for clarification on this. As you all know, Sears Holdings did hand over its lead creative/strategic duties to McGarryBowen in May after it was handled by Y&R Chicago for 18 years . Think that may have had something to do with this?

Update: Yes, we’ve been told cuts were made across departments and Sears was to blame.
