Yes, Publicis & Hal Riney Did Make Some Cuts

San Francisco-based Publicis & Hal Riney, or as it’s known now, Riney, is still getting adjusted with its Publicis Modem alignment (remember June?), and as a result, there were some more cuts made. Want clarification? Here goes some a comment from the agency’s top brass that was sent to us:

“We’ve been making ongoing strategic reductions – primarily related to bringing Riney and Modem together. We’re eliminating some roles that weren’t funded by client business, and adding others designed to better serve the new agency structure. By the end of the month, we’ll have the two companies together in one space, operating as one agency – with all the right people in the right jobs. We’re simultaneously adding and reducing people, as we work toward a single organization that’s highly digitally-literate. With that, one could call it a re-alignment.”
