The fact that there is a Local Planet partner agency present in each market that is headed by a person from that particular country means that the service is completely tailored and personalized," indicated Juan Manuel Muñoz, named CEO of Latin America for Local Planet. “Our focus is to provide the services where they matter: on the ground at a local level.”

Local Planet is the first global network to have a media agency in Cuba through which it is possible to reach an audience of enormous potential that is experiencing an opening to the world thanks to ingenious ways of distributing publicity.
