Jobs may be lost at McCanns following Peugeot loss

The Drum understands that following the loss of the Puegeot advertising account to London, redundancies may be made at McCann Erickson Manchester.

At the time of writing, it was not clear who on the account could leave, but it is understood that having picked up new clients, several jobs may be saved.

A spokesperson for the agency said: "To date there have been no redundancies as a consequence of the loss of Peugeot account and the majority of people who were involved with the account have been redeployed onto other accounts within the agency.

We are currently working with a handful of other people a number of options."

One of the new accounts is The Cross Country rail network which recently appointed McCann’s as its lead creative agency.

The news follows the agency’s announcement that Roy Husdell has become its digital creative director following the unexpected departure of Wes Hogg, who has left to become executive creative director of Manchester digital agency Code Computerlove.
