The World: Sydney - Telstra loss sees 15 more go at George Patterson

George Patterson has made another 15 staff members redundant following the loss of the Telstra business.

The redundancies come after 24 members of staff were axed from their positions in July of this year.

Julie Porter, who was appointed as the managing director of GPY&R Sydney by Y&R Brands' chief executive, Nigel Marsh, in July, said: "Due to the recent reassignment of Telstra business, we regrettably have had to retrench further staff from the Sydney office.

"We are endeavouring to redeploy as many of these people as possible in Y&R Brand companies and the wider WPP groups in Australia."
