Vitale Advances to Managing Partner at KB+P

NEW YORK Kirshenbaum Bond + Partners has promoted Domenico Vitale to managing partner after a collective six years with the agency.

Vitale had been a partner, director of brand planning since 2002, when he rejoined the New York-based shop following a stint at Havas’ MVBMS Fuel Europe in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, where he supervised planning for Volvo’s pan-European account. He initially joined KB+P as a senior brand planner in 1998.

“I think you realize at some point that you want to do this business with people you are like-minded with,” said Vitale. “If you share the same vision, the same end goal, you share the good times and the bad times.

Vitale joins co-creative directors Rob Feakins and Logan Wilmot and New York president Aaron Reitkopf as part of the managing partner group, which tackles issues regarding the health of the company. He reports directly to Stephen Fick, CFO, and Feakins, who also holds the title of vice chairman. The managing partners report to co-chairmen Richard Kirshenbaum and Jonathan Bond.
