Halloween has passed, but the telecom world is as scary as ever. Here's a rundown of last week's hirings and firings, via "Headcount," our new editorial vehicle whose tires are being constantly kicked:
Regrettably, Lynx PR maven Kelly Williams was one of the full-timers cut. Williams was always – well, usually – a good sport when Light Reading picked on Lynx for its hairline, its headlights, or its cracked rear-view.
The company hasn't returned calls yet, but PR guy Matt McGinnis admits he's no longer pulling a paycheck. "I'm not going to be able to comment," McGinnis says. "I have my hands tied." Headcount wonders how he picked up the phone.
