Collective hires an ex-Clicker

Collective, no stranger to ex-Clickers, just hired another, Lewis Rothkopf, as GM.  Congrats Lewis!

DoubleClick North grows!

The new running joke is that Collective Media has become DoubleClick North (due to their proximity to the DCLK office). Well, the ranks are now swollen by the addition of the 36 year old (why do they include age in the press release???) Jason Bigler. Press release here.. Jason joins Sean Koehler, Tony Lagana, Scott Leonardis and many more.. His bio pic looks like one he had taken at DoubleClick, I hope we send him an invoice for the rights to that photo! ūüôā

The Collective increase.. (and some sightings)

My post the other day was, apparently, just priming the pump. ¬†I have been informed of a bunch more ex-Clickers that are there or “in transit.” ¬†The list now includes Jose Tutiven, Parvinder, and now recruiter, Scott Leonardis. ¬†Good luck to all of them, it must be cool/weird to go to a new company and know everyone.. certainly removes those first day jitters!

In other worlds.. Kathryn Koegel (former head of Research and Industry Development) reports several clicker sightings at the Digital Publishing and Advertising Conference in NYC 10/27. Scott Knoll of Datran was on a panel as was Andrew Rutledge of Pubmatic.  Kathryn Koegel is back ranting about how to make online ads work better.  Latest whitepaper:

A Collective of Clickers

OK, it’s ¬†time to officially recognize the cluster of Clickers at Collective Media. ¬†I can kind of count Joe Apprendi, although that is a stretch. ¬†Falk delivered Peter Fernquist to DoubleClick, but he landed at Collective. ¬†Then, recently, 2 more long-standing Clickers have ended up there.. 1) Sean Koehler, fellow Cowboy fan, and 2) Tony Lagana, uber engineer for 10+ years.

Good luck to them, they got a good team now!
