Da Vinci Picks Up A PR Director

By SuperSpy 

That’s Leonardo Da Vinci’s Lady with an Ermine in Cracow up there. Project Da Vinci picked up a public relations director, so we thought it was only fitting. Plus it adds a little culture to the blog, y’know?

1. Ken Segall will serve as executive creative director.


2. Valerie Hausladen will serve as the new general manager of Project Da Vinci’s Austin office.

3. And now, Kelly McGinniss will head public relations for the Dell/WPP hybrid. Kelly is a former partner at Fleishman-Hillard and will be working out of the San Francisco office with 70-100 other folks.

Do you want to work for Da Vinci? No Wukkas. The Austion office is looking for an entry to mid-level copywriter.

“WPP is establishing a ground-breaking global marketing and communications agency. We are seeking an experienced Copywriter for our 200+ person office which will be located in downtown Austin. Project DaVinci, the working name, is a WPP company being built with a seamless marketing services offering – Dell Inc. is the founding client. Project DaVinci will be a global enterprise with a full suite of marketing services functions operating under one umbrella and one P&L.”
