Across Spain the use of branded content marketing is rapidly expanding. For this reason we believe it is now the right time to launch BCMA Spain. The Chapter is being launched and run by leading agency and marketing professionals with great experience in developing and executing successful branded content campaigns.
President: Marc Ros
Marc Ros is a marketing and communications expert, founder and CEO of AFTERSHARE.TV, the BRANDUCERS branded content forum and member of the first Branded Content Jury at the 2015 Cannes Lions, as well as a lecturer, media contributor and guest professor at the Pompeu Fabra University and the Ramon Llull University’s School of Communication in Barcelona.
Marc’s career spans 26 years and a range of different companies, from national leaders like Lorente and Slogan and independent international companies like Wieden&Kennedy and Leagas Delaney to a major global group like Havas Media – Euro RSCG, where he was tasked with both creative and general management until finally being named vice president of advertising company Havas Group.
In 2007, in the middle of a global financial crisis and digital transformation, Ros partnered with Risto Mejide to launch AFTERSHARE.TV, a company focused on brand strategy and content generation.
Eight years later, AFTERSHARE.TV, with offices in Barcelona, Madrid and Valencia and a team of 80 professionals, he has worked tirelessly for major brands including Grupo Atresmedia Televisión, BBVA, Bankia, Unidad Editorial, Fundación Trinidad Alfonso, Turismo de España, Poker Stars, TOUS, Grupo Danone, Grupo Z, Grupo Pascual, LFP, Euroleague, Buff, El Corte Inglés, Panrico, PUIG, Banc Sabadell, Barça Fans, Pago, Grifone, and NEON, among others.
In September 2011 Marc Ros once again paired up with Risto Mejide to spearhead BRANDUCERS, the first branded content forum in Spain. The forum, which offers brands, media and production companies a chance to meet first-hand, registered record numbers of participation and impact across the board.
Marc Ros was a member of the jury for the first Branded Content & Entertainment category at Cannes Lions in June 2012, the first Spaniard ever to hold such a position.
Ros and partner Risto Mejide also belong to an entrepreneurial system of 15 startups, contributing their marketing and communication expertise and resources.
