_By the Zemoga Team (@zemoga)_
This past March Andres Navarro joined the Z-team as the new Managing Director of our Bogota office. Andres is an accomplished executive who has led major digital practices throughout Latin America. Andres has more than 16 years of digital marketing experience, having led digital operations in Latin American markets for large global agencies. Prior to his appointment at Zemoga, he was IPG Mediabrands’ Chief Digital Officer of Latin America, where he oversaw the company’s successful digital operations, establishing practices in SEM, Ad Operations, Social Media, Ad Networks, Mobile and Production. He also acted as digital head for Latin America for IPG’s Universal McCann, working with brands such as L´Oreal, GM, Exxon, SABMiller and Microsoft. So he knows his stuff!
What’s Andres going to be doing? He’ll be focused on leading the daily operations of the Bogota office, which employs more than 120 professionals, and will develop expansion strategies for growing successful operations throughout the Latin American region (we’ve already got a few locations in mind). This will free up our fearless co-founder Alejandro Gomez to focus on his leadership in our Strategic Services as well as some US expansion plans we have on the West Coast. More on that next time. Now could somebody please find Navarro somewhere to sit?
Jason Brandt also joins Zemoga as Principal, Client Strategy and development.
A well known and respected executive in the digital and direct marketing community, Jason has spent the last 20 years creating and managing unique programs for world class brands such as Dell, IBM, Gartner, GSK, Sanofi Aventis, Diageo,Volvo, Volkswagen, RxRemedy, MetLife, Computer Associates, American Express and Canadian Tire Financial Services.
Jason has robust skills in cross channel, cross platform strategy, segmentation, research, media (social and traditional) and messaging. He knows a thing or two about creative as well. Jason seamlessly integrates offline and online programs to meet client business objectives. Prior to joining Zemoga, Brandt ran the Large Enterprise business for WPP’s Dell start-up, Enfatico. Prior to WPP, Brandt held the GVP role for global marketing at Gartner Events (where incidentally he was a Zemoga client). Prior to Gartner, Jason was a President and General Manager at Euro RSCG 4D running offices in Manhattan, Connecticut. We welcome Jason and we are stoked that he has decided to change the color of his blood to Zemoga green!
