Fleishman-Hillard Layoffs Now Official

Fleishman-Hillard, the big PR division of Omnicom, officially acknowledged staff cuts today by way of a statement to PRWeek from CEO David Senay.

Senay said the cuts are in the low single-digit percentage, and many markets in North America will not big affected at all. He also said the rumored cuts in Canada were overblown (9 instead of the blogged 20).

We hear that two General Managers were included in the cuts. Only a dozen people at Fleishman are listed in LinkedIn in North America with that title. If you have information on this, or background on the cuts that you’d like to share either on or off the record, get in touch here. Discretion guaranteed as always.
