LOS ANGELES, USA // David Stern opened Create Advertising, 13 years ago, and as CEO, what he loves most about his job is supporting the careers, lives, and creativity of the people who come to work each day. David considers himself fortunate to be able to spend his career finding new ways to get people to go see movies, watch TV programs, play videogames, and experience Virtual Reality. After beginning his career at Young and Rubicam, David moved into the creative realm at Intralink before opening Create. David is proud of the award-winning work that he has developed through the years, including campaigns for “The Amazing Spiderman”, “Quantum of Solace”, and most recently, “Black Panther”. He’s equally proud of the innovations Create continues to make in the entertainment marketing space; being the first LA creative shop to open a UK office, promoting the importance of multicultural marketing, and building the only full-service VR department housed at an entertainment creative agency.
David enjoys to spending his days leading and mentoring -- while recognizing that in the entertainment space, there always seems to be something new to learn.
