AP’s Perry joins NY-based Thunder11 as managing partner
Former Associated Press chief for Europe, Africa and the Middle East Dan Perry has joined New York City-based communications firm Thunder11 as managing partner.
In his new role, he will work on expanding the C-level strategic communications firm’s expertise in public affairs, tech innovation, sustainability and health care. From Tel Aviv, a major global innovation hub, Perry will serve as a gateway to the Israeli companies whose pathbreaking technologies are looking to gain awareness globally.
Thunder11 is already offering its clients a broad range of capabilities and the firm was recognized last year as “Boutique PR Firm of the Year” at the Platinum PR Awards and, in 2020, was named to the Agency Elite Top 100 list of leading U.S. communications agencies.
“We are elated to have Dan join us as managing partner and take Thunder11 and our clients to a new level,” said senior partner Marco Greenberg. “The practice of effective communications, in a genuine and thoughtful way, has never been more important than right now, and boutiques like ours are honored to help lead the way.”
During his work at AP, Perry helped lead coverage that won Pulitzers and other prizes, and also served as chairman of the Foreign Press Association in Jerusalem.
The author of two books about Israel, Perry has also written about politics and society for a range of publications including the New York Daily News, the Cairo Review of Foreign Affairs, and the Times of Israel.
Perry holds a Master’s degree in computer science from Columbia University.
