Two weeks back, our tips line lit up with news that CP+B group director David Page was allegedly leaving Boulder after a three-year stint and heading to NYC to take a job at BBDO. Well, at least the first part’s accurate as we’ve received confirmation that Page, whose exact title was group director, cultural and business insights at Crispin (or “cognitive anthropologist” in some cases) and was a “star planner” on Kraft while there according to sources, is no longer working at said agency.
But, the BBDO camp has been quiet in terms of confirming or denying his arrival and when we called the agency directly, Page wasn’t in their current employee listing. We can deduce at this point that either his start date/role at BBDO is still in the works or he’s simply gone elsewhere (maybe back to his old stomping grounds in London, where he’s had planning/strategy roles at Anomaly and DDB among others?). Wherefore art thou, Mr. Page? AgencySpy I-team (nod to Deadspin), assemble!
