TRIBAL DDB SHIFTS STAFF, MAY HAVE CUT JOBS

Published on .

(July 23, 2001) -- A spokewoman for Omnicom Group's Tribal DDB today would not confirm speculation that at least 10 technology and project management staff were cut on July 13, but said that "there were some people let go ... as part of a restructuring."

She said Jim Lecinski, general manager of the unit's Chicago office, is "redefining roles and job descriptions of the production department" and that staff would no longer be called producers.

"There will be a smoother work process so everything is more integrated and works better," the spokeswoman said.

The interactive unit also hired two project managers and named Cassandra Kovel, 36, solutions director, a post formerly called director of production, from senior manager-corporate development at sibling unit Organic. -- Kate MacArthur
