McClain Finlon facing layoffs due to Qwest account loss

Jeff Smith at the Rocky Mountain News reports that Denver ad firm McClain Finlon is expected to layoff an undetermined number of staffers in February due to the loss of Qwest Communications’ consumer account. Chicago-based Draftfcb announced several weeks ago that it had won the Qwest account, which is reported to be worth $95 million annually. AdWeek estimates that Qwest represented 30 percent of McClain Finlon’s total business, so dozens of staffers could be affected.

  1. The grim reaper arrived on December 21 just as everyone was heading out for Christmas. The toll is 120 lay-offs out of a staff of 170.

    The irony of it all was that the day before management gave out office Christmas gifts to all employees.

    Merry Christmas!
