Sorrell: Things will pick up, “maybe in the second half of this year.”

By Matt Van Hoven 

You’ve gotta love Sir Martin Sorrell’s attempts at staying positive, don’t you? Last night he was honored along with Scripps Networks Interactive Chairman of the Board, President & CEO Ken Lowe during the Paley Center for Media’s annual Gala Dinner held at Cipriani 42nd in New York. As usual, Mr. Sorrell had some notions about the future to share.

PRNewser’s Joe Ciarallo was there to report, and quoted Sorrell as saying thinks will pick up, “maybe in the second half of this year.”


Yeah, maybe. But we’d guess he wasn’t talking about WPP agency Enfatico, which cut an estimated 80 people yesterday. We’re told there will be additional cuts in the future, despite the agency’s assurances that yesterday was the only day of planned lay offs.
