GDC welcomes David Montemayor

GDC recently hired David Montemayor as an Account Planner. David will drive strategy for current clients and support new business efforts. Having previously worked with several agencies and big brands, we know he’ll bring a dynamic skill set to our planning process. We asked him a few questions to welcome him to our team and learn more about his new role within the company.

What is your current role?

My role within GDC has a focus on strategic development and consumer insight.  I speak for the consumer, by identifying and presenting insights that make for relevant and relatable messaging.  I also work to infuse a collective strategy into our combined efforts from new biz to account to creative. I work with a mindset that fuses strategic business acumen with creative thinking.

How has it been coming on board in the current environment?

Despite this new normal for onboarding, the team has been welcoming and accommodating. It definitely has limited the usual new job interactions and there are still many faces to put to names, but thankfully video calls exist – they make for a more “social” distancing.

What is your favorite San Antonio spot?

That’s a loaded question. As a local, it’s hard to narrow down so many faves, but I can try. My go-to foodie spot is “Attagirl” on the St. Mary’s Strip for wings and craft beer.  For a cocktail and atmosphere, I hit up “Liberty Bar” in Southtown.  For some “me-time,” I stroll through the Japanese Tea Garden. I’ve got to say though, since the start of the pandemic, I’ve found my favorite place is at a park relaxing in my hammock.

Tell us one thing about yourself that isn’t on your resume?

I’m a globe trotter! In addition to my many travels in the US, I’ve traveled through most of Western Europe.  Paris has a special place in my soul, but I could move to Lavapiés, Madrid and not look back. Next on the list is Eastern Europe and Northern Africa.

We are looking forward to integrating him into our client teams and the insights he’ll bring to all of our efforts. Connect with him here.
