Matt Dowshen is Managing Director of VCCP NY. With over 20 years of global brand strategy, communications and agency leadership experience, Matt joined VCCP in 2018 to lead the continued growth of its New York office. Matt has held roles at agencies including, Ogilvy, Deutsch, JWT and HUGE in cities all over the world (NYC, London, Sao Paulo, Bangkok). Matt has led marketing efforts and iconic campaigns for brands such as DeBeers, IKEA, Nokia, Time Warner Cable, Unilever, Mondelez, Grey Goose and Stolichnaya. Matt lives in NYC (Tribeca) with his wife (Alice) and two children (Maxwell and Neve). When he’s not in the office, he would prefer to be on a bike climbing a hill. Alas, that bike collects more dust than miles as Matt spends most weekends providing lousy advice and setting questionable behavioral examples while watching and coaching pee-wee soccer/baseball teams.
