We Hear: Tech Restructuring at VML/Y&R?

By Erik Oster Comment

Last week a source claimed that an untold number of employees who served as members of the New York-based VML/Y&R technology team had been laid off and that the agency’s tech operations would be subsequently relocated to another office in an effort to streamline the department.

A VML spokesperson refrained from commenting on any staffing changes today, citing an agency-wide policy against commenting on the status of individual employees.

The agency didn’t offer any specifics, but they did seem to refute the latter claim, stating that they will continue to run tech operations out of New York as before. So while the tech team may have experienced some downsizing (a claim which we cannot confirm at the moment), an untold number of the team’s members will continue to work in its New York office moving forward according to VML/Y&R.
