SAN FRANCISCO and AUSTIN, TX: Former Bay Area resident Andy Lark has joined Austin, TX-based Dell as VP of global marketing and communications, in the latest of a series of moves in the region.
Lark, formerly CMO at LogLogic, reports to Dell CMO Mark Jarvis, and broke the news on his blog.
In other news, Burghardt Tenderich, GM of North America for Bite, left the agency last month. Tenderich did not answer inquiries about his next move.
"[Tenderich] worked at the organization for a number of years, [and] it was a very successful time," said Tony Hynes, SVP at Bite.
But Hynes noted that the tech boom has created lucrative opportunities for senior PR staff.
"There are quite a few significant openings both at agencies and for the in-house side of things," he said.
Paul Bergevin recently left his post as president/CEO of Citigate Cunningham to join Intel as VP of its global communications group.
"I think it probably is true that it happens more on the Silicon Valley side because there are always interesting opportunities coming up on the agency and corporate side," said Eileen Conway, co-CEO at Cunningham.
