Dan Murphy is departing Google to join Deutsch as SVP director of digital operations and production in its New York office. He will oversee production of digital projects across all clients including Busch, J&J’s ACUVUE, and PNC Bank as well as manage talent on all digital production efforts.
Additionally, he will assist in new business efforts and grow digital production capabilities.
“Landing talent like Dan will be a game changer for the New York office," says Winston Binch, chief digital officer, Deutsch North America.
The ex-Google Creative Lab executive producer worked on Android’s “Be Together. Not the Same” campaign launch and the Androidify app, as well as the award-winning Google Trend’s FrightGeist. He co-founded VendorDB, a comprehensive resource database to pair creative companies with appropriate partners.
Earlier in his career, he spent time at BBDO as group executive interactive producer to manage AT&T’s digital work. He also worked at Eleven as director of interactive production working for clients like Apple, Visa, and Virgin America.
Previously Deutsch had both a director of digital production as well as a director of operations, but the posts have been open for more than nine months. Murphy’s position combines those roles.
