Greco Ethridge to Cease Operations

BOSTON — Technology shop Greco Ethridge Group, which enjoyed a rapid growth spurt in its New York and Boston offices during the dot-com craze, is closing down operations, another victim of the sagging economy and softness in the high-tech sector, according to sources.

An employee reached at the shop’s New York office referred questions to partners Tucker Greco and Rob Ethridge, who did not immediately respond to queries.

Launched as the ’90s began, the independently owned agency employed approximately 60 staffers in mid- to late-2000, but only a handful were believed to be left in recent weeks as the shop prepares to shut down. Major clients had included 3com, Interpath and Primavera.
