You may have heard last week that Derek Perez was leaving Nvidia. And you may have heard that it was not a pleasant parting. Well he is and it was.
I’ve been gagged about this and now the gag is off.
Derek Perez is leaving Nvidia and moving to Nashville to become the Chief Marketing Officer of the Nashville Predators, a NHL team.
Derek will be trading in his Nvidia suit for a Predator suit
Derek is ideally suited for this job. In addition to his 13 years at Nvidia in marketing, he studied sports medicine before that (which came in handy about six months ago when he dislocated his collar bone - playing hockey.)
This is close to a dream come trough for Derek and although we’ll miss him, we couldn’t be happier for him.
So bon voyage Derek, and keep your eye on the puck
