Dentsu Aegis Network today announces the promotion of Lizette Du Pond to Chief Client Development Officer of Dentsu Aegis Network Latin America (LatAm). The promotion comes on the heels of several new business wins including Beiersdorf Northern Cone and a growth surge in the business. In the last four years, through a combination of acquisitions and organic growth the LatAm region has quadrupled its revenue across the group’s 14 agency brands and nearly 2,500 colleagues.
Du Pond joined Carat in 2009 as LatAm Regional Director and took on the role of Dentsu Aegis LatAm Regional Director in 2012, where she led new business opportunities for the network. She has worked in the industry for 15 years on clients including Disney, Hilton and Sony.
In her new position, Du Pond will focus on creating integrated solutions that tap the capabilities across the entire LatAm network and ensure consistency in terms of strategy and execution across the region.
“Since Lizette came on board nine years ago she has proven her client development strengths and been a key driver for the growth of our LatAm group, supporting and growing our business in the local markets,” said Claudia Colaferro, President, Dentsu Aegis Network Latin America. “This tracks with our optimism for the region in 2017, which is why we continue to invest as a group in the LatAm market.”
“I’m very passionate about my work helping brands reach multicultural growth markets in Latin America,” said Du Pond. “I’m motivated every day to continue growing our business and reputation in the LatAm market and am looking forward to building on this momentum in 2017 and beyond.”view more - Hires, Wins & Business
