NEW YORK — Dawn Langeland, most recently Golin New York managing director, has been named the operation's first president.

In the newly created role, Langeland’s responsibilities have been expanded to include oversight of The Brooklyn Brothers, the creative agency Golin acquired in 2016, in addition to Golin’s New York office. She reports to Golin co-CEO Gary Rudnick.

Under Langeland’s leadership, Golin New York over the last year has experienced double-digital growth, spurred by new healthcare, consumer and corporate clients, the agency said. Langeland joined Golin in 2015 as deputy managing director, stepping up to managing director roughly three months later. She previously led FleishmanHillard’s global consumer products practice.

“Dawn’s leadership of Golin New York has been nothing short of transformative since she joined the agency more than four years ago,” said Rudnick. “She has more than doubled the  New York office, while attracting tier-one clients and talent to what’s now the fastest growing office in our agency. Dawn leads by example, as she’s equal parts driven, compassionate, fearless and strategic. With a broader remit in New York, Dawn will undoubtedly take us to even greater heights.”
