How Jose Borghi is Transforming the Brazilian Advertising Industry

Jose Borghi has made a name for himself by being one of the most renowned advertising executives in Brazil. He has helped creation of numerous captivating ads. Mr. Borghi serves as the co-Chief Executive Officer of Mullen Lowe Brasil. He rose to prominence after creating Mammals Parmalat, an ad that featured kids dressed up like stuffed animals. Since then, his career has grown in leaps and bounds.

Borghi was born and brought up in Presidente Prudente on adforum.com. He studied at PUC Campinas from where he holds a degree in advertising. Despite the success that he has had in the industry, Jose embarked on his career accidentally. He developed an interest in advertising during his high school years. This is after he accompanied his sister to watch a performance at a theatre on noticias.terra.com.br. The star of the show was a presentation that featured commercial Vts. Watching the performance made young Jose to make up his mind about pursuing advertising as a career.

Before venturing out to form his own ad agency, Jose Borghi worked at Standard Ogilvy where he was a screen writer. He had further stints at FBB, Talent, DM9/DDB, and Leo Burnett. His interest helped him perform roles assigned to him in a judicial manner. Besides this, he was able to learn about what it takes to establish a successful advertising agency. The lessons that he learnt while working at the aforementioned firms, have helped redefine his career as an advertising executive at Mullen Lowe Brasil.

Entrepreneurial Success

Together with fellow advertising guru Erh Ray, Jose Borghi co-founded Brazilian advertising firm Borghi Lowe in 2006. Having worked in the industry for many years, he felt that he was ready to venture out, and set up his own agency. However, he was faced with a myriad of challenges. Key among them was lack of funding. No bank was ready to give them a loan to set up operations. However, they worked with the little resources that were available, and managed to turn the firm into one of the most successful Brazilian ad agencies.

Borghi Lowe recently joined forces with Mullen Group to form Mullen Lowe. This has catapulted both firms to greater success. Borghi’s stature in Brazil’s advertising industry has similarly grown. At the moment, he is Mullen Lowe’s co-CEO. The company’s client list includes major corporations such as Delta Airlines. Borghi intends to use his experience in the industry to help the firm stamp its authority on the global market. It has already established itself in several South American countries.

Brian Bonar: Still Going Strong

After thirty years of professional management experience in the financial sector, one might think that Brian Bonar would get tired of the job. Maybe he would get burnt out or look towards retirement. That isn’t Brian Bonar, however. He is always burning the midnight oils, putting in the extra effort, and putting himself out there. He isn’t looking to just take it easy, kick back, and say, “Well, I’ve done my job. Let me relax now.” In fact, it is the opposite for him. He is looking for ways to improve, expand, grow, and become even stronger and better. That is proven by his recent award, which was the Cambridge Who’s Who® Executive of the Year in Finance. Keep in mind, now, that only two men and two women get this award every year.

Brian Bonar is always looking to keep things fresh and interesting. He doesn’t like to get comfortable or content. In his mind, those are two of the worst things that a CEO or a Chairman can be. This award will not change his style, his approach, or how he runs his business. It will make him work even harder to prove that the award was given to him for a reason and he has earned it. That is Brian Bonar, though. He likes to work for things. He doesn’t want anything to be given to him on a silver platter. He prefers to roll up his sleeves, get down and dirty, and keep working as hard as possible.

His hard work is what has gotten him to this point, where he is looked at as a leader. Leadership, in fact, is one of the things they look for when they give out this award. They don’t make leaders like Brian Bonar that often. They have just the right leadership style that works and allows the company to succeed, grow, and become better, each and every day. When Brian wakes up in the morning, he can’t wait to tackle whatever task is thrown his way. He doesn’t believe in problems. He believes in solutions and finding the right one for each and every problem.

That’s the thing about Brian. He is like a great quarterback in the fourth quarter. He is ready to step up, make the throw, and lead the charge. He doesn’t crumble under the pressure or hand off the job to someone else. The man also doesn’t like to take days off or take it easy. He knows that you have to keep working at it and you can’t stop. There is always someone out there, some competition, and he wants to defeat the competition and stay on top.

The Man Causing A Stir On The Forbes 400 List

The Forbes 400 list tends to attract the attention of many each year when it comes out. Perhaps we just like to see who some of the most wealthy people on the planet are, or maybe we are somewhat jealous of their success. Whatever the case may be, there is no question that this list garners a lot of attention when it comes out. However, one person on the list who some may have missed is Ken Griffin. Ken Griffin is not a household name in the way that Bill Gates or Mark Zuckerburg are, but that does not make him any less important. In fact, he is one of the more active people on the list in terms of jumping up that list year after year. This has to do with the fact that he is amassing some wealth for himself through his investment firm known as Citadel. Citadel is a firm that was founded by Griffin with the intention of working in the markets in the ways that only he knows how to do well. This mean that he put his investment ideas to the test with the firm and that he worked hard to build it into something that could beat the markets on a regular basis. In 2015, Griffin was highly successful in his quest to beat the markets. A 13% return in the first eight months of 2015 looks incredibly good to most. It was something that Citadel accomplished by being patient and not panicking when the market was in turmoil during the month of August. A lot of other professionals and firms lost money during that period of time, but Citadel just continued to march on. The firm is finally getting its accolades in the market, and they are well deserved. There are few who could say that they pulled off something like this during one of the worst markets in recent memory, but Citadel did. Ken Griffin is definitely someone to watch by simple virtue of the fact that he is proving that he can make it even when the markets get tough and others run for the door.
