Take 5 with David Ahistrom

This week David Ahlstrom, senior account manager at Mindshare, is on the spot.

1 Why did you choose advertising as a career?

After my degree, I did the MSc in advertising at DIT. For the end-of-year agency pitch, I was a group media planner and I was asked by Mindshare if I'd like to have a chat. The rest, as they say, is history.

2 Which sport do you follow?

I particularly like rugby. I'm a Leinster season ticket holder.

3 Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn?

All of them, mainly Twitter.

4 Do you like gadgets?

I'm an Apple nerd.

5 Your best holiday ever?

A few of us are in New Zealand for Ireland's World Cup matches against the USA and Australia. Hopefully the best holiday ever.
