Michael Douglas/Mediavest Spark

Michael Douglas is an acknowledged leader in the New York media industry with 18 years of experience in multi-media marketing and advertising. Currently, he serves as the senior vice president, U.S. Investment Lead on the Publicis One Team, overseeing all media buying efforts for Citibank. Mike holds hundreds of key relationships with media partners and ad tech companies in NYC and across the U.S.

Raised in Hendersonville, NC, Mike graduated from Sewanee, the University of the South. His parents pushed him to be a leader and encouraged him to stand on his own two feet, to work hard, and to never hurt anyone, he says. His mother’s family immigrated from Mullies, Co. Leitrim to the Bronx when she was seven, and lived a couple of blocks from his father (who lived on Briggs Avenue), to whom she has been married for 44 years and who served as a detective in the NYPD.

Mike and his wife Brett live on Lake Hopatcong, New Jersey with their two children, Connor (8) and Annabel (5), and their two pets, General Patton (dog) and Rocket (kitten).
