Trevor Hansen, CEO of EPMG, tells Portada that with the rapid growth in EPMG's digital platform and overall growth in Hispanic print media, "Alex will be focussing on the synergy of these vehicles along with experiential opportunities where appropriate to create and deliver strong multi platform programs to our clients. An example of this is our forthcoming multi market/national World Cup program."

“Alex has proven to be a leader in the advertising and communications industry and we are pleased to add him to our team,” Hansen, adds. “His experience, passion, and leadership will be a huge asset to our company, agency, and client partners.”
