In 1958 in the sweltering hot city of Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Alexandre Gama was born to a pair of hard-working parents whose dreams the then-infantile Gama would eventually surpass.
In 1978, Mr. Alexandre Gama went to the Armando Alvares Penteado Foundation to learn more about mass communication and marketing. It was there, just four years after he initially enrolled in the postsecondary university, he graduated with flying colors, taking home a degree in the dual concentrations of Advertising and Communications. Earning just one degree from FAAP, or the Armando Alvares Penteado Foundation, is nothing short of special, though earning two degrees has proven thus far to be nothing but extra speial to the career goals and aspirations of Mr. Alexandre Gama.
He moved far away from Brazil in 1982, virtually as far away as somebody from southern Brazil could possibly move from their homeland, to find employment in the land of opportunity – the United States of America. There, he found a solid job with Standard Ogilvy & Mather, an advertising agency that has been called one of the best on planet Earth for decades upon decades.
Nearly a decade of experience with the firm termed today as Ogilvy & Mather helped transform Mr. Alexandre Gama from nothing more than a run-of-the-mill employee prospect to someone that truly knew the game of advertising from the inside out. Further, because most people in Brazil aren’t fortunate enough to go visit the United States of America for any length of time, they typically aren’t privy to the standards of communication, advertising, and marketing that the United States came up with on its own.
Mr. Gama has been a major investor in Briggs Automotive Company. He’s also been a member of Publicis Groupe’s Global Creative Board.
