Alain joined la comunidad from Leo Burnett, where he worked in several different offices and roles, most recently as Senior VP - Regional Strategy and Business Development in the Latin America headquarters in Miami. Throughout his career at Leo Burnett Alain championed clients in account management, developed the agency?s marketing communications offering, lead new business efforts as well as brand consulting projects in Brazil, Chile, Puerto Rico as well as the U.S. He has worked with local and multinational clients such as Procter & Gamble, Citibank, Federal Express, Diageo, Gatorade, Walt Disney and Visa, across a broad variety of categories from packaged goods to telecommunications (and most things in between.) What motivates Alain is curiosity - about brands, categories, clients, people. While he has an MBA from Duke University, his multidisciplinary approach was most probably inspired by his background (half French, half Dutch, born in New York, raised in Canada and a lover of Latin America) as well as his fluency in many different languages.
