David Garson

Executive Creative Director


New York

Dave has spent his career in creative advertising and technology, leading at both big network agencies and small shops with two key goals in mind: developing top-notch creative talent and driving the product to be the best it can be. He has a reputation for collaboration with his internal team and co-creating with his client partners. Dave’s years of agency experience have taken him from Madison Avenue to Europe and back and include playing integral part in building and leading the first independent, global, healthcare agency network. He has helped propel one agency to Most Creative Agency and another to Best Mid-Size Agency Of The Year. This path has led to a diversity in experience from OTC consumer advertising to high-science, multiple indication launches, disease education, franchise/portfolio management, and more. Part of that journey included co-founding a tech startup aimed at on-demand, talent management for healthcare agencies. Ambition and entrepreneurial spirit has kept his style and love of creative leadership fresh.
