Deja vu

Nope not the strip joint kitty corner to where I use to work. I am unemployed again. Anyone need an accountant?

SouthComm announced today it has laid off seven people in response to the loss of a significant client.

“With the decision of one of our clients that ran a significant amount of foreclosure notices with us to move that business to another paper, we were left with no choice but to make cost adjustments,” SouthComm CEO Chris Ferrell said. “Unfortunately, in our business that mostly means reducing staff. We will be working with the people we are having to let go to help them through this process as much as we can.”

Ferrell also said none of the company’s nine publications is at risk, adding that the company as a whole remains strong.

Founded in late 2007, SouthComm now employs 141 people, the majority of them in Middle Tennessee.
