Top Panregional Advertising and Media Professional of the Year

Bruno Almeida  – US Media Consulting

Brazilian native Bruno Almeida got his start in media during the 90s Internet boom. He handled customer service for the pioneering portal Starmedia, then graduated to sales with Brazilian Internet provider UOL a few years later. This experience led him to launch US Media Consulting in 2003. His first focus was online sales in Latin America, which at the time seemed like a crazy notion. But one million dollars in sales the first year proved that notion to be a clear vision of the future.  Since then Almeida has expanded US Media to handle print, TV and OOH, growing the company by 1,900%. He’s signed key deals with iG, CBS Interactive, Bloomberg TV, the Wall Street Journal and other major brands. Currently he’s working on the launch of new offices in Latin America to handle US Media Consulting’s rapid expansion in several markets.
