RGA

When we last heard from R/GA New York, the agency announced the hiring of ECD Mike Rigby, formerly with Interbrand Australia, to help advise clients on brand strategy.

Today brings word of more changes at the New York office (which will soon begin its transition from an agency headquarters to a fancy hotel): an unknown number of staffers are now unemployed. Here’s the agency’s official statement:

“As with any agency of our size, there are always staff changes occurring. However, we are not currently nor do we plan on executing any large scale layoffs at R/GA.”

We can confirm that Nick Katsivelos, managing director of technology and strategy, resigned to take a position at digital business platform Apigee. CTO John Mayo-Smith also resigned to join the International Dyslexia Association, where he is now the marketing and technology chair.

We can provide one important detail: the party will go down at The Frying Pan on West 26th Street and the Hudson River at 6 PM tonight.
