Under Donny Deutsch's leadership as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Deutsch Inc., the company has grown into the nation's premier cutting-edge advertising agency, with blue-chip clients, including Mitsubishi Motors, Johnson & Johnson, Revlon, Coors, Novartis, Expedia, Monster, and Old Navy. Both "Advertising Age" and "Adweek" have honored the $2.7 billion agency time and again as "Agency of the Year."

He is also Managing Partner of the independent film production company Deutsch Open City. In presidential politics he was a lead member of the successful Clinton/Gore communications team. A graduate of the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, Donny now serves on two prestigious boards: UPenn School of Social Work's Executive Committee and the Board of Directors of the Michael J.
