Dave Lubeck
Founder & Managing Director
Dave Lubeck
Founder & Managing Director

Dave is the founder and architect of Unbound’s modern and alternative agency model. Identifying the frustration of numerous clients who desired greater intimacy and connection to solving their brand problems – Dave answered the call. Longtime Executive VP at Kansas City’s independent Bernstein-Rein, in addition to tours of duty at top shops in Detroit, New York, and Chicago, his leadership on brands like McDonald’s, Walmart, Hostess, Bayer, Petsmart, H&R Block, and others have paved the way for Unbound’s long run of success. As co-chairman of the 4A’s new business committee, Dave has had the privilege to come to understand the pros and cons of every agency design and configuration. He knows Unbound’s unconventional nature is not for every client —only those who want to slice through atrophied agency methodology, bloated overhead and cut to the chase, hand in hand with passionate strategic specialists, and a liberated pool of hand-picked creative talent. Dave is an advertising maverick, charting a course for client breakthroughs.
