Landor makes six redundancies

Landor is in the process of making six redundancies.

Those leaving the consultancy include creative director Derek Johnston, who has been with Landor for ten years, and planning director Phil Gandy, who has been with the group for around four years, working on consumer brands.

Two designers also working on consumer brands are being made redundant, as well as an artworker and a member of the IT team, as Landor’s parent company WPP looks to centralise its IT functions.

This latest round of cutbacks comes after the consultancy made ten redundancies last October (DW 8 October 2008), leaving it with a staff of 80.

Cheryl Giovannoni, European president of Landor, says, ‘We are responding to the current climate and looking to remedy the consultancy as agile and flexible while trading conditions are tough.’
