Many people strive to accomplish lofty goals in their working lives, instead dropping out of school, performing poorly in occupational positions, ad failing to work long enough hours to make something meaningful of one’s self. Alexandre Gama’s compelling career is the polar opposite of this example most people, unfortunately, encounter in their working lives. He’s been the CEO and CCO of worldwide advertising group Young & Rubicam, simultaneously, marking himself as one of the world’s few advertising agents to perform as such. Mr. Gama has even earned in excess of 22 Lions from the Cannes Festival, held in Europe every year, which recognizes the most successful film and media producers from around planet earth.
Gama first gained footing in the world of advertising in 1982, in which he was first employed at Ogilvy & Mather, a global advertising agency located in the heart of NYC. After serving four other agencies, Alexandre Gama founded Neogama, his very own agency, roughly translating to new Gama, or a rebirth of his advertorial career.
The successful advertising guru is currently a member of the Global Creative Award, a sizable shareholder in Briggs Automotive Company, and a recipient of multiple Canoré awards.
