“Husani, Jeff, Oliver and Andrew are all business leaders within their respective departments and have fully embraced our explorer mentality. Husani has a profound interest in emerging technology and culture and its power to build brands, he brings the agility and smarts needed to navigate the ever-changing tech and media landscape. But, above all, nothing beats his forward-thinking attitude and energetic presence.”
The three new VPs worked in media, planning and production roles. Morgan has been with Deutsch for almost 20 years.
