Fifty-nine years ago, a child was born in Rio de Janeiro. He was named Alexandre Gama. Little was it known that infant Gama would grow up to be the renowned businessman that he is today. Alexandre Gama is an advertising expert associated with Neogama, one of Brazil’s twenty largest advertising firms. He is the founder and CEO of the company.

Eight years later, he was hired by DM9 as a copywriter. For the four years he worked at DM9, Gama was the most awarded writer in the country. Before establishing Neogama in 1999, Alexandre worked at AlmapBBDO and Young & Rubicam.
Alexandre served as the Chief Executive Creative Officer of BBH. This position made him the first person of Brazilian origin to be at the top of a global network of communications companies. Additionally, Alexandre Gama is the only Brazilian who has served as a member of the Global Creative Board.
