Alexandre Gama’s Long, Storied Career

Alexandre Gama, a Brazilian advertising executive, is best known for founding and running Neogama, an advertising agency that he formed in 1999. He has won a number of awards throughout his long, storied career.

Mr. Gama started his career by going to school at the Armando Alvares Penteado Foundation, bringing home a degree in advertising and communications. Alexandre Gama first started working at Standard Ogilvy & Mather, an advertising agency, in 1982. Gama worked in the capacities of content creator and copywriter.

After eight years with what’s now known at Ogilvy & Mather, Alexandre Gama went to DM9, another advertising agency, and filled the role of copywriter, although he moved up the ranks as a creative director. Over the next four years, he won more awards than any other advertising employee in the entirety of Brazil, larger than every other organization in the world except for four – such an accolade sure says a lot about the capabilities of Mr. Gama.

Alexandre Gama has served the Brazilian Association of Advertising Agencies, the Cannes Film Festival, and more.
