Vivian Baron

Founder

@vivbaron

Crushing entrepreneurship and mastering PR expertise make her worthy of a title… or do you know anyone else who started an agency at 25? The answer is no. Vivian is the Baroness of PR and the head of Band of Insiders. And no, she does not need to be revered… she needs challenges to continue to secure her title.

Hey, British monarchy! It looks like you may need someone with a title to handle that “family crisis”…

Angélica Cabrera “Gela”

CAO - Chief Amplification Officer

@gelamaria

With the country’s leading media in her pocket, rubbing shoulders with important journalists and getting dozens of likes from the most famous influencers of the moment, Gela’s strategic mind is redefining the communication industry in Mexico and leading Band of Insiders by the hand.

It seems that the next goal of “the boss” will be to conquer the world.

Juan Carlos Basurto “Pollo”

CMO - Chief Marketing Officer

@el_pllo

Charisma, glamor and followers are not enough to take over the world of Marketing. This is why, in addition to being the lord and master of the above, JC dominates the art of experience, strategy, creativity and seduction, which he has used to win over Band of Insider clients for over 20 years.

Well, well… it seems that we are in the presence of the “Brand Whisperer”. Don’t forget to follow him on social media.
cyn

Cynthia Monroy

CFO - Chief Financial Officer

Once upon a time in the lands of PR, Influencer Marketing and Creativity, a great warrior conquered numbers and finally sorted out each Insiders’ expenses. Her authority among the community creates a kind of halo around her that is nothing more than a reflection of the respect that everyone has for her.

Despite the times we live in, requesting invoices from Insiders with a look worthy of a medieval warrior is enough for “Lady von Numbers”.
FACU

Facundo Romero

Creative Director

@facundo75

It was the year 1975 when Scorpio dominated the skies and among the many gifts that characterize this sign, it was the gift of creativity that was bestowed on Facundo in every way.  His ingenuity and curiosity have led him to come across the strangest facts, cook the most exotic recipes and even read the tarot.  Can all this be applied to a job?  Of course!  If you’re curious, check out his work at Band.

Sorry divas, we actually do have a Creative Director who’s “modest and charismatic”.

ESS

Esstefannie Estevez

Head of Influencer Marketing

@geeksilla

Just like anything King Midas touched turned to gold, whatever Ess touches turns into an influencer, hashtag or trend.  Moving pieces around in the digital world requires a level of audacity and skill worthy of a strategist who can think as fast as the internet.

Diving into this deep world isn’t for everyone…  so just leave it in the hands of the queen of Influencer marketing.

Roel

Daniela Roel

Head of New Business & Marketing

@droel

Dear diary: We met and hired the most popular girl. Roel moves among the trendiest people of any topic, brand, field or media that you may need. Oh, those who you shouldn’t even approach? Yes, she knows them too. No contact goes unsaved in her smartphone or planner.

The truth is, we’re not sure how much of a mean girl she must’ve been. But she was, is, and will continue to be a Queen Bee.
MAIRA

Maira González

Head of Corporate Communications

@mai_baudouin

Years of experience being the voice of important accounts makes up a large part of her career, which she enriches with her love of art.  Telling stories, especially those that belong to her brands and the ones she comes up with (tales, anecdotes and poems), is her hobby.  Understanding the world and its inhabitants is one of his passions. 

She provides a clear example of how anything corporate-related has a lot of art and heart behind it.

Alberto Castro

Head of Consumer Comms

@betoastro

In the world of PR, not everyone can belong, remain and be a benchmark for best practices. This is reserved for those who are intelligent, who have the air of a diva and, of course, a sophisticated touch of fashion splashed with an ironic sense of humor. This describes Alberto, who believes that strategy is a lifestyle that goes well with certain brands and media… the best. Watch out! Before you know, you’ll be wrapped up in his charms.

It seems that someone … is always ready to kill.
XAVIER

Xavier Barrios

Talent & Culture Manager

Reading people is Xavi’s gift and he never takes NO for an answer, especially if he wants you to join Band’s ranks.  The ambition of our human capital enthusiast led him to pour his talent, empathy and charisma into the extreme sport of headhunting. 

His mantra, which has helped him overcome several challenges, is “you’ll never feel completely fearless when doing something, and if you wait until you do then you’ll never do anything”.  Whatever he sets his sight on, he deciphers and recruits.

dione

Dione Rubio

Head of Producción

@Dionki

¿Volver realidad esa idea increíble? Tenemos a una productora para la que ninguna idea es imposible.

 Actriz de profesión, pero hace 15 años que Dione decidió volcar su pasión y perfeccionismo en el arte de la producción. Ya que hablamos de exigencia, ella posee un récord de 46 horas despierta durante un evento para lograr los mejores resultados.

 Su tono directo y sinceridad pueden ser imponentes, pero si de pelis o series hablamos, su cora se ablanda hasta las lágrimas. 

 

medi

Andrés Medina

Editor in Chief

Medi domina con especial pasión el acontecer cultural de México. Ha sido periodista en dicho ámbito y lleva 12 años en el medio editorial, por lo que no es de extrañar que tenga como hobbies la música, el cine y el arte…sin olvidar, que es un crack en el Tetris ¡directo en el cora retro!

Posiblemente estamos hablando de uno de nuestros Insiders más cultos, de hecho puedes visitar su Galería Panteón y comprobarlo. Por cierto, su quote favorita es: “It is what it is, till it ain’t”.
