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.
