His LinkedIn hasn’t been updated to reflect any changes as of today, but a Twitter post from David Perez, aka @DavidOnDemand, perhaps says it all. Perez, of course, made a splash in the media world two years ago ahead of the Cannes Lions by being a slave to whims of the Twitterverse, which in turn earned him a trip to the festival. We’re checking with the AKQA camp for verification on Perez’s arrival in San Francisco. The Chicago native has spent the last four years as a creative recruiter at Leo Burnett and Lapiz. We’ll keep you posted.
Update: Perez himself has confirmed that he will indeed be recruiting creatives at AKQA SF come May, adding via DM, “Will ALWAYS love Leo. Greatest place on earth.”
Update 2: AKQA also confirms Perez’s upcoming arrival in the Bay Area, adding that his official title will be senior creative recruiting manager. And yes, he will be based in the San Francisco office and report to Jennifer Remling, global director of recruiting.
