Maia Dunkel is a modern-day Mad Woman (technically, from a job perspective she’s a Pete Campbell-type, but she does work at one of the last agencies actually on Madison Avenue). A NYC-based Account Executive with strategic and creative chops in all mediums, she has served in several account roles at major agencies like Ogilvy, Saatchi & Saatchi and Razorfish having worked on top global brands such as Huggies, Head & Shoulders and Campbell’s.
Other interesting facts about Maia: she was born and raised in New York, speaks fluent Russian, and is a published author.
