PermissionTV Shuffles Staff, Doesn’t Blame Economy

PermissionTV, a provider of white-label video sites that says it differentiates its service from its many competitors by making its platform more open, has let go of six employees from operations, sales and marketing. The company has replaced three of the salespeople, for a net loss of three people.

We initially looked into the layoffs under the assumption that they were related to increased pressures due to poor economic conditions, something that’s affected many tech startups in the last couple weeks, including Seesmic and Heavy in the video space. However, a PermissionTV spokesperson described the shift as “performance-based” and a called it part of a changing of the guard under new SVP of sales and business development Jim Alla.
