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.
