The Essential List

The Essential List: Chavo D’Emilio

McCann LATAM Regional CD and McCann Buenos Aires President loves Ms. Pacman and can't get enough of chips

The Essential List: Chavo D’Emilio

As Regional Creative Director for the whole of McCann’s Latin American operations, we reckon that Chavo D’Emilio has a dizzying amount of ideas to conjure, nurture and deal with. But for him, the best place document these is inside his own very head. He’s also the President of McCann Buenos Aires, but you won’t find him lunching at his desk – he prefers to head home to get his midday fix. Odds are that he’ll be chowing down on some sushi.
