Energy BBDO/ cuts 19 staffers

| No Comments

Energy BBDO/Chicago became the latest Chicago ad agency to cut staff late last week. An agency spokesman confirmed the shop laid off a total of 19 employees across all departments last week -- approximately 10 percent of the agency's total employee count. At least two group creative directors -- Todd Hoffman and Al Wyatt -- were among those let go.

The Energy BBDO spokesman attributed the staff reduction to a drop in ad spending among its clients, which include the Illinois Lottery and the Wm. Wrigley Jr. Co., long the agency's flagship account. Energy BBDO also is the agency of record for the Chicago White Sox.
