Austin, TX– Brands are busy readying their physical and digital activations here the day before South by Southwest Interactive begins. ClickZ caught up with PespiCo’s recently named global director of digital, Josh Karpf, as his team put the final touches on the brand’s “Central Station” inside the cavernous Austin Convention Center.
After serving other digital roles in recent years for the Purchase, NY-based beverages/snacks giant, he was elevated to his new title after B. Bonin Bough left for Kraft last month.
