Manifest wins with Watsky hire
by Moll Levine
Manifest New York has just made a new senior hire with David Watsky, who will assume the role of Account Director.
Watsky joins Manifest from DKC where he worked for nearly 3 years on accounts such as Champagne Bollinger and Grubhub. Prior to that, Watsky was at EVINS Communications where he drove major wine and spirts campaigns for Maker’s Mark and Cakebread Cellars.
Watsky joins Manifest NYC at an exciting time of growth, as the company has recently won a raft of new accounts including Sex Expo, Imperfect Produce and the Plum Guide. As well as directing a number of Manifest’s biggest accounts, David will also create media strategies across the entire company’s portfolio and support the junior team on their journey to become kick-ass publicists.
“With a background in both communications and writing, I was wholly drawn to Manifest’s commitment to letting creativity inform and drive the work we do for our many great brands across a multitude of exciting industries.”
Jessica Becker, Director of Manifest NYC said:
“Hiring David was a massive win for Manifest. Not only does he come armed with a bulging black book of media contacts and reams of coverage to match — his creativity and hunger to push the boundaries is what made him a perfect fit for us. We’re so happy to have him join our team.”
As Manifest continues to attract global brands with its offices in London, Stockholm and New York, David will also be responsible for bridging the gap between the offices, ensuring that clients can be serviced seamlessly across the oceans and timezones and strengthening its global processes.
