Deutsch Hires Boston Ballet Veteran Doris Chung to Lead Creative on Mott’s and Canada Dry

By Patrick Coffee 

The L.A. office of Deutsch made its newest creative hire, naming Doris Chung as SVP, creative director.

In the new role, Chung will lead creative on the Mott’s and Canada Dry accounts, reporting directly to CCO Pete Favat. She officially starts the new job on September 10.

Chung has quite a unique history: she started her career in the nonprofit sector as a designer and art director with Boston’s Ballet and Symphony Orchestras before moving into the agency world with a gig at Arnold. Prior to joining the Deutsch team, she spent more than a decade with DigitasLBi working on the Buick, GMC and P&G accounts, among others.

She also worked on the American Express “Everyday Genius” American Express campaign, which was not by Ogilvy!

Favat called the newest hire “a jack of all trades,” adding, “She has created powerful work for world-renowned brands from American Express to Harley-Davidson. Her global experience and passion for nontraditional mediums fits well with our creative vision, and I know she’ll have an impressive impact on our work for clients.”

Deutsch picked up both the accounts she will be running—in addition to 7-Eleven, Tile and Target holiday—in 2017.
