VMLY&R COMMERCE, WPP’s end-to-end Creative Commerce company, with presence in 6 Latin American countries, has a robust network that allows the movement of talents among its wide group of agencies; thus, strengthening its management at a regional level. As it has already happened in other occasions, this time, talents from VMLY&R COMMERCE | Geometry Colombia are growing within the group’s offices in Mexico. This is part of the network’s ongoing commitment to expand its operations and strengthen its global presence.
Sandra Mejía, who started as General Production Director, was also Creative Director and finally one of the agency’s General Account Directors in Colombia; and Carlos Mendoza, who was an account executive at Geometry in Peru and then at VMLY&R COMMERCE | Geometry in Colombia, are now part of the VMLY&R COMMERCE Mexico account team where they will work alongside the agency’s global clients.
This movement of talent contributes to the diversity of perspectives within the network, while strengthening the corporate culture and improving processes at a regional level. Additionally, it increases the team’s commitment to the opportunities that belonging to the network represents. In this case, both have been part of the VMLY&R COMMERCE teams at the regional level for five years, where they have had the opportunity to grow and enhance their skills in communications, marketing, and advertising.
