Personal finance site The Penny Hoarder has cut some staff
The St. Petersburg-based personal finance website The Penny Hoarder has laid off a handful of editorial workers, reports Margie Manning of The St. Petersburg Catalyst.
Manning reports, “It did not say how many people were let go or the size of the staff that remains.
“‘We’ve had to make difficult decisions to better position and reorganize ourselves for the future, including the reduction of our team,’ Kyle Taylor, founder and CEO, said in a statement. ‘It’s no secret that the media industry is in a state of great change.

“The company had 82 employees and $36.9 million in 2017 revenue when it was listed on the 2018 Inc. 5000. Its three-year growth of 861 percent put it at the No. 581 spot on the list.
“Pinellas County and St. Petersburg officials celebrated the company’s growth in November 2017, when The Penny Hoarder moved into 23,000-square-feet on the top floor of the Tampa Bay Times building in downtown St. Pete.”
