Partners + Napier hires managing director for NYC office

Rochester Business Journal
June 17, 2014

Partners + Napier Inc. has hired a new managing director for its New York City office.
The firm has added in Matthew Dowshen, an integrated marketing and agency management veteran.

“I’ve known Matt for a long time,” said CEO Sharon Napier in a statement. “We worked together on the same client while he was at Deutsch (Inc.), and he was a great competitor. I knew he would be the right entrepreneurial leader to help us achieve our vision for New York.”

Dowshen previously was employed by Ogilvy & Mather—an international advertising firm—for five years where he served as senior partner, managing director and director of client services.

The move allows Dowshen to reunite with Jason Marks, his longtime creative partner who serves as executive creative director of the New York City office of Partners + Napier. Marks also left a position at Ogilvy & Mather to join Partners + Napier.

“The opportunity to lead and grow an independent agency with people I’ve long respected is something I’m thrilled to dive into,” said Dowshen, in a statement. “I’m also looking forward to working as part of the Project: WorldWide network. It’s a network that truly represents a new model of collaboration and the future of marketing communications.”

Project: WorldWide is a global network of advertising agencies, including Partners + Napier, that collaborate on specific brand projects.
