Mark Penn is the CEO and chairman of MDC Partners, the company that owns agencies including 72andSunny, Anomaly and Doner. But his background largely lies in politics: He’s advised both Bill and Hillary Clinton throughout his career as a pollster and strategist. Penn also met with President Trump last year but denies advising him.
