Over the past couple of years, Chevy has been gradually transitioning their advertising development towards IPG, and minority-owned LatinWorks is 49% Omnicom.
In addition, the agency’s president/CCO Sergio Alcocer says, “We had a tremendous ride with the Chevy brand for the past four years, starting with the launch of Cruze which was one of the most successful launches in the company’s history. Agency consolidations like this one happen every day in our industry, sometimes in our favor and sometimes against us. LatinWorks just experienced the most successful year in our history and we are looking forward to continued growth in 2014 that includes further expansion into the total market and creating quality work that reflects the new and diverse culture of our country.”
