DDB Needham lays off 21 in Chicago office

Published on .

DDB Needham Worldwide late last week laid off 21 staffers or 3% of its Windy City work force "to bring our resources in line with revenues," according to a spokeswoman. She said the decision wasn't due to the agency's loss of the Discover Card business, which went to Goodby, Silverstein & Partners, San Francisco, the same week. The cuts were across the board, leaving untouched only the strategic planning department. Among staffers laid off was Group Creative Director Nancy Rice, a founder of the Minneapolis shop originally named Fallon McElligott Rice.
