Carlos Sapene

CEO, Chief Creative & Technology Officer

The innovator and strategist

Tell Carlos about a marketing problem, and you’ll likely sense the wheels turning in his brain. He’s known to come up with a couple of dozen solutions all at once. With nearly 20 years of leading digital experiences in entertainment and tech, his ideas have made digital marketing leaders out of E!, NBCUniversal, Style Network and Bravo. Red carpet events, for example, will never be the same. At E!, Carlos led the team that pioneered the 360-degree glam cam a decade ago. Today, the big networks have followed his lead and vision by developing OTT platforms and using social media to distribute content and engage audiences in order to keep up with the rapidly changing way audiences consume content.

As our CEO, Chief Creative and Technology Officer, Carlos uses technology to drive creative strategy and business growth for our clients. He’s built IT infrastructures from scratch and can easily navigate back-end systems. Clients have called Carlos a “magician” partly because he ideates and executes from different perspectives: programmer, growth strategist, product developer, even world traveler. One of the most common mistakes in marketing, he says, is making assumptions about personas. Having lived in Caracas, London and Paris, his international experiences have helped him understand and appreciate the nuances of human psychology.      LinkedIn
