Ogilvy MD Matt Dowshen Joins Partners + Napier

Matt DowshenAgency veteran and Ogilvy & Mather Managing Director Matt Dowshen “was recently wooed away from big agency life” by Partners + Napier, an independent shop that sold to Project: WorldWide in 2011 and hired him as MD to manage its growing New York office.

Dowshen joined Ogilvy in 2009 after leaving Deutsch NY, where he managed IKEA and Novartis. Before joining that shop, he held positions at JWT overseas in Bangkok and Sao Paulo.

The move will reunite Dowshen with Jason Marks, who worked with him at Ogilvy, handling clients like Kraft and Philips Norelco, for more than two years before leaving to join P+N in early 2013.

The agency’s New York office opened in 2012 and handles clients like Lufthansa Airlines; Dowshen calls the opportunity to work with longtime colleagues at an independent agency “something I’m thrilled to dive into.”

CEO Sharon Napier, who worked with Dowshen at Deutsch, writes:

“I’ve known Matt for a long time…I knew he would be the right entrepreneurial leader to help us achieve our vision for New York.

I know our clients will find immense value in his leadership.”
