The Essential List: Rodrigo Jatene

The Essential List: Rodrigo Jatene

Just one month after bagging the Cannes Lions Grand Prix in Mobile this year for ‘Corruption Detector’, Grey Brazil CCO Rodrigo Jatene upped sticks from his hometown of São Paulo for Los Angeles. Staying within the Grey network, Rodrigo is now the CCO of Grey West, overseeing creative across the agencies Los Angeles and San Francisco offices, “the two meccas of cutting-edge entertainment and technology respectively,” in his eyes. 

So, what better time to tap him up for his Essential List and get to know the real Rodrigo?
