DFCB fuses together 139 years of advertising, branding, data analytics, and digital expertise. Our story begins at the intersection of art and science: the place where consumers’ heads and hearts collide. The process of methodically sorting through facts and feelings, needs and wants, rational and emotional, leads to a plan of action that is all about changing behavior.

Executive Sponsor

Dominic Whittles

President

Dominic seeks partners who value accountability and creativity equally, in environments where risk-taking is rewarded and being wed to convention is frowned upon. He started in the mail room and worked his way up to Regional President. Along the way, Dominic has helped brands like Levi’s, Dockers, Amazon.com, Electronic Arts, Clorox, Del Monte, Kikkoman, Citicorp, Taco Bell and Hewlett-Packard succeed.

Dominic has benefitted from the unique perspective that comes from having lived in England, Switzerland, Germany and the US, and from having a father of Welsh descent and a mother of Indian descent.
