ALMA Celebrates Expanding Vision by Moving to New Waterfront Headquarters

Mar 24, 2011, 15:30 ET from Alma

MIAMI, March 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Alma, the Miami ad agency with soul, is moving to a locale that perfectly matches its creative, cutting-edge flavor – Coconut Grove, Florida.

Leading the way out of the recession, Alma's ability to produce winning campaigns for its clients created a nice problem – it needed to grow.

One of Miami's most famous and historic neighborhoods, Coconut Grove has long been an incubator of creative ventures and intellectual capital. It's an ideal location to reflect and inspire the vision of Alma's expanding creative team.

No building is more iconic of the Grove's incomparable mix of natural beauty and state-of-the-art business amenities than the SBS Tower on South Bayshore Drive. With breathtaking views of Biscayne Bay and the international banking and commerce sectors of downtown Miami and Coral Gables, the SBS Tower is a nexus point for the entrepreneurial spirit that makes Miami the unofficial Capital of the Americas.

Alma has grown significantly in recent years, with 99 professionals under the helm of President and Chief Creative Officer, Luis Miguel Messianu. Recognition from the industry has followed. In 2010, Alma was the only Hispanic ad agency to make Advertising Age's A-list.

The team expanded with two marketing legends assuming leadership positions: Isaac Mizrahi as SVP Managing Director, in 2009; and in January 2011, Diego Yurkievich took the reins as SVP Executive Creative Director.

"This is a great new beginning for our agency," says Luis Miguel Messianu. "It brings integration, inspiration and productivity for our team; progress and innovation for our clients, and it demonstrates our commitment to our industry, our partners and our staff."

The move to the stylish new headquarters was the perfect opportunity to further enhance their business strategy by creating brand affinity cells working close together. This fresh approach allows the teams to integrate all disciplines into the ideation stages seamlessly.

This Friday, March 25, Alma will celebrate this new chapter in its renowned 17 years history in the U.S. advertising industry with its clients, partners, staff and friends.
