Brazil hosts Y&R's LATAM CEO Meeting
4 April, 2012
The meeting gathered 35 leaders from the agency network in the region.
On March 21 and 22, Rio de Janeiro hosted Y&R’s LATAM CEO Meeting, an event that gathered 35 chief executive officers from the agency network in Latin American. The meeting – which aimed at making a balance of the 2011 results and align the goals for the coming years – counted on the presence of the chairman and CEO for Y&R Latin America Eddie Gonzalez as the host, next to Roberto Justus, CEO of the Newcomm Group, Marcos Quintela, Y&R Brazil president, and his COO David Laloum. Also present were Y&R’s global CEO David Sable; Ann Newman, Executive VP at the WPP Group; Jon Cook, president and CEO at VML; and Fernando Taralli, VML@Y&R Brazil’s president.
The choice for Brazil to host the event was an acknowledgement of the excellent performance of the agency’s base in the country – which in 2011 consolidated itself as the number one office in revenues among the network’s 185 units, having grown 17% in comparison to 2010. During the meeting, the executives also had the opportunity to get to know the city better aiming at exploiting opportunities related to the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Olympic Games.
