Michael Jones leaves MEC after 19 years
Michael Jones, CEO of MEC Latina America, is leaving MEC after 19 years at the company. MEC hasn´t announced yet who will replace Jones, but will do so soon. Jones departure comes on the heels of recent new appointments at MEC including José Miranda as new Analytics & Insights Director for Latin America and Fernando Monedero as LatAm Regional Digital Director.
Michael Jones started working at Mediaedge:cia in 1996, where he launched The Media Edge across eight markets in Asia. Jones lived in Hong Kong until 2002. In 2005 he was promoted to LatAm CEO in order to build the agency's presence in this rapidly growing region; "MEC has quadrupled in size and is the fastest growing network in the region", Jones says in his Linkedin profile.
Jones is one of the main leaders in the Miami based panregional advertising and media space, speaking at many Forum's including Portada's Annual Latam Advertising and Media Summit.
