It’s like pulling teeth sometimes, people. OK, we will end our David Page saga for the time being by letting you know that BBDO has confirmed the CP+B alum is in fact joining its NYC office as group planning director on a “wide range of clients.” Sure, there was no I-team assembled as threatened, but a little nudge doesn’t hurt. Page’s official start date is on Halloween. Can you dress up on your first day on the job?

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!
We’re hearing from sources that CP+B’s David Page, who currently serves as group director, cultural & business insights, is heading to BBDO New York. We have yet to hear back from the latter agency and were unable to get confirmation or denial from CP+B. From what we’ve been told, though, Page was a “star” planner on the Kraft business among other things while at Crispin, where he’s spent the last three years.
Prior to CP+B, Page held group planning director roles at Anomaly and Euro RSCG.The U.K. native also spent five years as a strategy director at DDB London. We’ll of course let you know as soon as we get some more concrete info on the matter.
