A few people have asked my opinion on the big Publicis Ominicom merger news from this past weekend. There has been plenty of reaction, and a lot of smart thinking about the deal has been published in outlets ranging from Richard Edelman’s blog to PRWEEK to the Economist. My reaction is that of a small business owner who vies with these giants.
I can’t help but see choppiness in the waters ahead, from client conflicts to employee churn to PR playing second fiddle for many brands under the merged company’s umbrella.
