Kashtan Joins Doppelt at EuroRSCG NY

Well, it took them nearly a month after we reported it but EuroRSCG has confirmed that Steve Doppelt is joining the agency as executive creative director. Also joining in the ECD ranks is Steve Kashtan, who arrives from DDB New York, where he spent the last five years, give or take, as a creative director. Once again, Lee Garfinkel‘s co-chairman appointment at the start of 2011 may have had a little to do with the Kashtan hire as they’ve had some history at DDB and Lowe (while Doppelt worked with Garfinkel at Lowe on Sprite, Heineken and Sony among other accounts).

Doppelt will focus primarily on Dos Equis at Euro while his fellow ECD Kashtan will work on Charles Schwab and Kraft Foods. If you need history on Kashtan, he spent 10 years at Lowe and eventually moved up to EVP/GCD.

Steve Doppelt Heading to Euro

After spending over four years as group creative director at Omnicom’s New York-based unit Merkley + Partners, Steve Doppelt is heading to Euro RSCG’s Big Apple branch according to sources familiar with the matter. From what we hear, Doppelt is joining up as ECD on the latter agency’s famed Dos Equis account, though his exact title and start date haven’t been confirmed as of yet. We’ve been told by our sources that Doppelt’s hiring had a little something to do with the fact that since Lee Garfinkel took on a co-chairman role alongside Matt Ryan at Euro NY at the beginning of the year, the former has been contacted by people who have worked with him in the past.

Anyhow, during his time at Merkley, Doppelt served as creative lead on accounts including Arby’s, Dave & Buster’s and Ad Council. Prior to Merkley, Doppelt spent four years as a CD at Kirshenbaum Bond Senecal + Partners, working on business including Mohegan Sun and Verizon. His resume also counts creative stints at Publicis, the now-defunct Cliff Freeman & Partners and Lowe.
