Hampel/Stefanides President Brian Goodall said the agency has reduced staffing in its San Francisco office to 10 people from about 30 early this year. The cutback follows the decision of key client Packard Bell NEC to move some of NEC's $40 million account in-house. General Manager Michael Colacchio is stepping down. Mr. Goodall said he foresees no more cuts, adding, "The only thing I would expect is that the group would actually grow" as the San Francisco office pursues new business.
