Facundo is an Argentinian creative who came to Puerto Rico when he was 18 years old to forge his career in advertising.

Over the years, Facundo has worked for major brands including P&G, McDonald’s, Kellogg’s, DIRECTV, Nestlé, FOX Sports, NFL, and Bud Light.

Before joining Wunderman Thompson, Facundo worked for three years at Wieden + Kennedy New York on the creative team when the agency was voted the best in the world and in the US two years in a row. Before that, he worked for five years at Grey New York as Creative Director, contributing to Grey being voted best agency in the US and the world for two consecutive years as well. In the beginning of his career, he spent six years at Leo Burnett Puerto Rico, leading the agency to be one of the most recognized and awarded on the island.

Facundo's work has been awarded by many of the best festivals including Cannes Lions and the Effie Awards. He’s also been on the jury of the Ojo de Iberoamérica, the Wave Festival in Brazil and the US Hispanic Idea Awards.

Facundo has a Bachelor's degree in Advertising and Public Relations from the University of Puerto Rico, where he met his beloved wife and with whom he has two children. He is passionate about soccer and Boca Juniors and in his spare time he likes to read, watch movies, and eat a good steak accompanied by an even better red wine – why is why his cholesterol level is always ‘borderline high’.
