And so, the agency travels of David Perez, the guy once known as #DavidonDemand, continue as the man has landed yet another creative recruiting gig, this time at San Francisco’s Venables Bell & Partners. A month ago, folks familiar with Leo Burnett Chicago, where he first made his splash as a Twitter slave during Cannes 2010, were telling us that Perez was working on a freelance project for its L.A. office. Now, he’s back in full-time mode at VB&P, serving as creative recruiter and heading back up to the Bay Area, a familiar territory seeing as he most recently held a similar position at AKQA SF for a solid six months.
During his time at AKQA, Perez also oversaw the creative internship program “FORGE,” as well as a small team of recruiters and coordinators in both San Francisco and Portland. VB&P ECD Will McGinness sings the new hire’s praises in a statement, “We’re thrilled to have David at VB&P in this new role. His sustained track record of recruiting great talent and personality will add a lot to VB&P’s culture.”
