D+R is a close-knit team committed to connecting brands to customers.

Our Founder

Christopher Runge

Chris left a career in law to become a copywriter in New York City.

He worked his way up the creative ladder in the New York agency world at shops like Cline, Davis & Mann and the Cement Works.  Along the way, he developed expertise in infectious disease, oncology, metabolic disorders and psychiatric/CNS products.  He brought that experience and expertise to Concentric as a Managing Partner.  

After he and his partners sold Concentric to MDC Partners in 2011, he went to Purdue Pharma, LP to run their small in-house creative services operation.

Chris turned the in-house shop into Factory 201, an award-winning, full-service ad agency with four Agency of Record accounts (the Purdue over-the-counter business: Colace, Senokot, Slow-Mag and Betadine).  

Chris founded D+R in 2018.
