Alexandre Gama is a Brazilian advertising executive that’s been atop the marketing world in the South American country for the majority of his career.
He started his long career by going to the Armando Alvares Penteado Foundation, where he learned how to apply knowledge from the advertising and communications fields. After he graduated in 1982, Alexandre Gama immediately found an open position at Standard Ogilvy & Mather, an advertising agency located in the United States. Mr. Gama served the roles of copywriter and content creator, standard for virtually everyone that enters advertising agencies in entry-level capacities.
After spending eight straight years with Standard Ogilvy & Mather, Mr. Gama made a lateral move to DM9. Quickly after he was hired at DM9, he was promoted to creative director. During the four-year period Alexandre Gama spent at DM9, he won more awards than anybody else in the entire nation of Brazil.
Mr. Gama went to Young & Rubicam, now known as Y&R, to work as a CEO, CCO, and member of its board of directors. He founded Neogama in 1999.
