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!

GoldyOn May 18, I was at an event organized by the Mobile Marketing Association at the Park Hyatt Hotel in Buenos Aires.
