Jose Borghi and Mullen Lowe Brasil are in the Business of Winning Hearts and Minds

Advertising is about a lot more than attracting and retaining customers. It is about winning hearts and minds. This is often easier said than done. As such, it is quite astonishing that one company, Mullen Lowe Brazil, has been able to do so consistently. Today, the company is among the largest in the thriving Brazilian Advertising industry. The company is run by two Chief Executive Officers, with the longest serving one being Jose Henrique Borghi.

Mullen Lowe Brazil is part of the larger multinational Mullen Lowe Group. The company came about through a series of mergers and takeovers that all trace back to Jose Borghi. In 2002, Jose Borghi launched own advertising company and befittingly called it BorghiErh. After four years of considerable growth and success in the Brazilian market, the company attracted some international admirers with the most serious on being Low + Partners. A merger was thereafter completed between the two companies. The new organization formed has since grown and undergone a series of restructuring efforts that culminated in it changing its name in 2015 to Mullen Lowe Group. The Brazilian subsidiary of the group was therefore aptly named Mullen Lowe Brazil and has both Jose Borghi and Andre Gomes as its Chief Executive Officers.
