Deborah Darnulc

Deborah Darnulc started her career over 20 years ago working at the  Manhattan advertising agencies of N.W. Ayer, Bozell, Jacobs, Kenyon  & Eckhardt and Jordan, McGrath, Case & Taylor.  While there she  worked on some notable consumer accounts such as AT&T, Minolta, U.S.  Air Force, Vanity Fair, Tonka Toys and Ecotrin.  She joined John  Harrison’s agency, Harrison, Leifer, DiMarco, in 1989 as Media Director  and was an integral part of their growth from five employees to 40.   Deborah implemented many successful marketing campaigns for clients such  as Fougera Pharmaceuticals, Medical Action Industries, and Professional  Disposables, Inc. While Deborah specialized in the healthcare industry,  her knowledge of consumer marketing was put to use in helping HLD’s  consumer electronic, financial and banking clients grow their business  as well.

And now partnering once again, Deborah and John have started The Brand Compound.
