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.
