Global Brand President, Performics Worldwide
David Gould has over 25 years of diverse leadership, operations and finance experience, with the most recent 13 years focused on executive positions in the digital media industry. In October 2017, David became Global Brand President, Performics, moving from his role as Global Chief Delivery Officer, where he was responsible for the flawless delivery of service and capability across the Performics network. Performics is Publicis Media’s dedicated performance marketing practice and recognized as a category leader in this space. Working closely with the Performics Global Leadership Team, David harmonizes the tremendous portfolio of assets, capabilities and talent across Performics’ 57+ markets and six centers of excellence to drive operational excellence on behalf of clients with consistency and reliability.
Prior to joining Performics, David was EVP, Global Digital Managing Director for Starcom MediaVest Group and previously served as President of Resolution Media, Omnicom Media Group’s search marketing agency, where he helped grow the company from 20 to 150+ people in the span of five years. Other previous experience includes positions with United Airlines’ direct marketing and FP&A groups as well as time with online DIY start up OurHouse.com. David also served seven years as a US Naval Officer where he served in Operation Desert Storm and held positions as Anti-Submarine Warfare Officer, Anti-Air Warfare Officer and Navigator aboard the guided missile cruiser USS LEYTE GULF (CG 55).
David is a graduate of Northwestern’s Kellogg Graduate School of Management and of Marquette University with a BS in Electrical Engineering. Despite having left the Navy, David still has some salt water running through his veins. He loves to sail and loves to read, especially military history. And when not immersed in the relentless pursuit of excellence for Performics, David spends time delivering less than excellent performance on the golf course!
