IMS – LinkedIn Names New Director for the Southern Cone

Sebas GilA few days ago, I read on LinkedIn that Sebastián Gilfue was recently promoted from Senior Sales Manager at LinkedIn Argentina to Sales Director of LinkedIn for Argentina, Bolivia, Paraguay and Uruguay. If my calculations aren't off, this would be his sixth year in LinkedIn's commercial area (first, through Fox, then now, through IMS). Good luck, Sebas!

The MMA Forum Argentina 2016

GoldyOn May 18, I was at an event organized by the Mobile Marketing Association at the Park Hyatt Hotel in Buenos Aires. I arrived right as Juan Göldy, CEO of Logan and Chairman of MMA, was giving the official opening to the event, and I was there almost until the end. It was a full day, with the presence of leading speakers in digital media, who shared their knowledge and experience in mobile.
