You never know which is bigger—Val’s brain or her heart. With Deutsch for over 25 years, she’s led the Agency in building mega-big global brands, challenger and underdog brands, while simultaneously being leader, mentor and culture cultivator to the Deutsch family. Bronx born, with the accent and toughness to prove it, Val was brought up in a tight-knit family with three sisters. Val is a steadfast champion of women and underrepresented populations and accepts no compromise between winning and having fun doing it. Precious family time with her husband Dick and son Bryan is spent enjoying NY’s treasures, the theatre, the culturally rich museums, cooking and squeezing in as much travel as they can!
