Digital Surgeons co-founders Pete Sena and David Salinas announced today that Mike Raleigh has been appointed President of the company. An experienced agency leader, Raleigh will assume all day-to-day leadership responsibilities, effective immediately. 

"With the forward-obsessed vision in place and resonating strongly in the market, I'm proud to see our offering and capabilities continuously expanding as a brand strategy and demand design consultancy," said co-founder Pete Sena. "We're poised for significant growth after having won multiple large contracts — two of which sit on the Fortune 50 list this year. Mike's compassion, leadership, and operational rigor make him a perfect fit to take our business to the next level. Under Mike's leadership as SVP, Client Success, we transformed our approach to client engagement and attracted some incredible talent across strategy, account, and creative." 

Raleigh, a veteran, husband, and father of two kids and one dog, comes to Digital Surgeons with a wealth of experience from major agency brands where he worked on domestic and global assignments in many categories, including leadership stints on Unilever, Heinz, Diageo, Heineken, and Callaway Golf.

While at Grey Group agency G2, Raleigh was a member of the North American Leadership Team, followed by time at Geometry Global (merger between Grey, JWT, and Ogilvy entities) where he sat on the North American Product Council. He is also proud to have been a part of a number of award-winning projects for creativity and efficacy over the years.

"I'm incredibly grateful for the opportunity to take Digital Surgeons forward and for the trust that Pete and Dave have placed in me. Here's to making DS famous," said Mike Raleigh.

"It's not every day you meet a person like Raleigh," said co-founder David Salinas. "We're beyond fortunate to have someone with the skills, empathy, rigor, and vision for DS he has, which is sure to achieve major results for our business and the clients we serve."
