Alexandre Gama has turned himself from a simple copywriter into one of the world’s premier advertising executives. His rise was not an overnight journey but has taken the better part of 40 years to achieve. The Brazilian executive and entrepreneur began his career as a copywriter after graduating from college in 1981. He received a job offer from Standard Ogilvy & Mather, and over the next decade established himself as perhaps the best copywriter of his generation.
He parlayed his success in the industry to become a creative director and executive at several agencies in the 1990s. Gama then founded his own firm, which he named Neogama, in 1999. Over the past 2 decades, Gama has turned Neogama into one of the world’s most decorated advertising agencies, winning 23 Golden Lion Awards, among many other accolades. His continued perseverance and attention to detail has taken Gama far beyond his wildest dreams.
