Daphne Weisbart


As CEO of Fenenbock Group, Daphne Weisbart is responsible for overseeing the operational and administrative aspects of the firm, and is Michael Fenenbock’s most trusted adviser on his creative work.

Raised in New York City, Daphne earned a BA in political science from SUNY-Binghamton in 1983. After graduating she settled in Washington, DC, where she spent several years as a staff member for various advocacy organizations.

Moving cross-country to San Francisco in 1987, Daphne’s interest in politics led to a position with a successful mayoral campaign. Caught by the campaign “bug,” Daphne accepted a position the next year with a much ballyhooed California legislative race. It was on this campaign she met her future husband and business partner Michael Fenenbock.

As CEO of MAX Films, the precursor to Fenenbock Group, Daphne has had executive responsibility for numerous award-winning advertising campaigns. A top-flight producer, she is admired for her personal warmth and attention to detail. She is also recognized as one of advertising’s savviest media buyers.

Daphne and Michael live today with a houseful of bird dogs (Vizslas to be precise) and split their time between California and New York.
