NEW YORK, January 28, 2021 – Interbrand Group, today announced the promotion of Gonzalo Brujó to Global President, effective February 1st, 2021. Currently the Global Chief Growth Officer of Omnicom Group’s (NYSE: OMC) Interbrand Group, Brujó steps into this newly created role with expansive leadership experience and will be responsible for the day-to-day operations of Interbrand Group around the world. Charles Trevail will continue in his role as Global Chief Executive Officer of Interbrand Group.
Brujó has been Global Chief Growth Officer of the Interbrand Group for three years. Prior to that, he spent more than fifteen years scaling the Interbrand business in Europe, Latin America and the Middle East.
