Darren founded DSM in 2007 and has been our fearless leader for 15 years and counting. He focuses most of his time on being a brand ambassador for both our clients and the agency. His passion and determination are unmatched…all while ensuring that DSM is community-centered and giving back. He brings an energy every day that ensures the people around him are on a path for success…and feels that this is the most important part of his job! Darren is a passionate sports fan as well – usually, you can hear him screaming at the TV during all things Liverpool FC, Green Bay Packers, New York Yankees, Rangers, Knicks and Penn State Nittany Lions. He has won many awards over the years, including being a finalist for EY Entrepreneur of the Year (2018 & 2017), NJBiz 40 Under 40 (2013), Jersey’s Best Marketing and Communications Professionals Under 40 and has led DSM to (4) Inc. 5000 Awards (2018, 2020, 2021 and 2022). Darren also sits on the board of Backpacks for Life, a non-profit organization serving homeless veterans based in Jersey City as well as the Behind The Seams committee on behalf of Eva’s Village in Paterson.
There’s a reason we’ve been with DSM for 15 years, and it starts with Darren’s unique blend of leadership and accountability.
