David Verklin, exec VP-managing director, Hal Riney & Partners, San Francisco, has been offered the job of CEO for Carat
North America, according to managers with knowledge of the situation. Mr. Verklin would likely have to move to New York for the post; he has strong ties to the San Francisco Bay area, and those close to him said it's unlikely Mr. Verklin would accept the offer. He turned down an opportunity to head up Zenith Media
, also in New York, earlier this year, insiders said. Carat had no comment and Mr. Verklin could not be reached.
