Neogama is one of Brazil’s top advertising and communication firms. They have been in operations since 1999 when Alexandre Gama first founded the company. Both Neogama and Alexandre Gama have won multiple awards and together they are changing the industry.
Alexandre Gama received two degrees from the Armando Alvarez Penteado Foundation. One in communications and another in advertising. He has dipped his hands in many fields including the music industry, Brazilian art and advertising. Of course, his most notable has been advertising. In 2006 he was named one of seven most important business professionals in Brazil and he even won Agency Director of The Year. A year later, in 2007, he was awarded entrepreneur of the year and received recognition as one of the top ten leaders in communication. Again, in 2009 he was named one of ten most important leaders in communication in Brazil. These are just some of many awards he has won as a leader.
Neogama, on the other hand, has received many awards as well. In their first year of establishment they won a Lion at The Cannes Festival. This was the first time in history that a company received such an award in only their first year of operation. In 2002 the company was named Agency of The Year for their work in advertising. A year later, in 2003, they won two additional Lions at The Cannes Festival. The company has had a few partnerships with other companies, but has since returned to having no partners and Alexandre Gama as the leader.
In addition to advertising and communications, Alexandre Gama has made contributions to Brazilian art and music. His work was displayed at the Brazilian Art Museum for two months and is said to be the first show of its kind. In 2014 he established VIOLAB which is an acoustic guitar instrumental music project that included a studio, its own record label, and a YouTube channel. He has won a total of 23 Lions from the Cannes Festival and is now one of six members of the Global Creative Board.
