Huge Expands in Latin America with New Tech Hub in Brasília
November 2, 2012 - Brasilia.
Huge has announced the opening of a second Brazilian office in Brasília, the country’s federal capital. The new office will partner with Huge’s team in Rio de Janeiro, functioning as a technology hub for the company in the region and providing specialist mobile development services to Huge’s clients throughout Latin America, the United States and Europe.
The expansion of Huge’s Brazilian operation comes in response to the growing demand for the company’s services in Latin America and the opportunity to partner with the talented development community in Brasília. The new office will focus on providing technology solutions for mobile and emerging platforms, two of Huge’s fastest growing service areas globally. In August, Huge was ranked
among the United States’ three largest agencies in mobile revenue by Advertising Age. The investment in additional development resources reinforces the agency’s leadership in the industry and helps clients accelerate their transition to mobile platforms.
“Brazil has been one of our biggest success stories in 2012. The demand for our services in the region shows no signs of slowing down and the talent and expertise we have in Brazil continue to give us a competitive advantage, not just locally but globally,” said Aaron Shapiro, CEO at Huge. “The development work being done in Brasília, particularly on mobile platforms, is as good or better than anywhere in the world right now and we’re excited to see the talent and passion Brazil is known for become an even bigger part of what we do.”
Eduardo Torres, Managing Director of Huge’s Rio office, added that additional technology resources have already provided Huge with a significant competitive advantage over creative agencies operating in the local market: “We’ve seen the impact that Huge’s team in Brasília is having on our clients and our designers. We’re able to push each other to think even more creatively about emerging platforms and new ways to take advantage of mobile. The result will be a number of really exciting things to come out of Huge Brazil in mobile over the next 12 months.”
Huge’s team in Brasília will be overseen by Fernando Aquino, who has joined the agency as Managing Director of the office. The office is already home to 15 employees, working in partnership with Huge’s Brazilian headquarters in Rio de Janeiro on a number of client projects.
The new office is located at SBS Quadra 2 Bloco E Sala808, Ed. Prime, Brasília, DF, 70070-12, Brazil.
