It’s a rather vague hed, we know, but then again, Fallon’s always been rather cryptic when it comes to confirming tips about the comings and goings of its staff (unless it’s a major promotion announce like Mike Buchner, of course). Anyhow, we’ve been receiving tips sporadically since the beginning of the month regarding layoffs at the agency’s Minneapolis HQ, with reasons including Fallon being overstaffed.
While that remains unfounded for now, we did receive this statement from the agency, which reads, “Fallon continues to grow and has not lost any accounts this year. We are, however, making adjustments to our team composition in response to our clients’ changing needs. This includes some new hires and some departures.” Yep, about as specific as you can get, but we’re just left to wonder had Fallon won Sears, how this “adjustment” might’ve been affected. We were unable to pry numbers or departments affected, but we’ll let you know if that changes.
