SapientNitro, parte da Sapient (NASDAQ: SAPE), anunciou hoje a nomeação de Marcelo Sant’Iago como vice-presidente de Business Development para a América Latina. A nomeação é resultado do início das operações da SapientNitro na América Latina no começo deste ano com a aquisição da famosa agência digital sediada no Brasil, iThink. Sant’Iago se subordinará ao COO da Sapient Nitro, Preston Bradford, e será responsável da liderança no crescimento da agência em toda a região.

Sant’Iago traz com ele mais de duas décadas de experiência criando oportunidades de crescimento para as melhores marcas na América Latina. Antes de entrar para a SapientNitro, Sant’Iago atuou como sócio gerente na MBreak Comunicação, uma empresa de consultoria empresarial em São Paulo que aconselha empresas visando à expansão no mercado brasileiro. Antes disso, foi chefe de Business Development na RealMedia, onde encabeçou parcerias com a Google, Pubmatic e Rightmedia. Sant’Iago também foi gerente geral na MídiaClick, a primeira agência no Brasil de marketing com base na performance. Ele trabalhou estreitamente com o Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB) nos EUA para criar um capítulo brasileiro, onde atuou como presidente durante dois termos. Além disso, Sant’Iago obteve posições executivas na JWT e na iProspect Brazil.

Sua integração única de criatividade e especialidade em marcas e tecnologias, apresentadas através de um P&L global, criam um sucesso revolucionário para os clientes que procuram transformar a forma como suas marcas engajam com os consumidores”, disse Sant’Iago. “Na América Latina, o "digital" corre pelas nossas veias. Já faz algum tempo que o consumidor tem estado preparado para um novo modelo de engajamento – um que crie espaços de experiência multidimensional - e a SapientNitro está equipada para ajudar as marcar a alcançarem isso.”
Sant’Iago é responsável pela liderança do crescimento da agência na América Latina, incluindo a orientação de novos negócios e a expansão das contas globais existentes da SapientNitro que se beneficiarão das capacidades integradas da agência na região.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints.

We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today.
