Carlos "Charlie" A. Thompson, a graduate of Loyola University, New Orleans, lives and works in Puerto Rico where he serves as the Vice President and General Manager of De la Cruz & Associates Puerto Rico, an Ogilvy affiliate. Carlos runs a team of sixty-five advertising professional and is responsible for the overall success of the company in the region. Currently, he is focusing on increasing the company's margins to advance its P&L. He actively participates in professional advertising associations and has served as past president of both his local association and the Puerto Rican chapter of his International association. He writes regularly for his company blog as well as one of the large Puerto Rican newspapers. In fact, he recently wrote an article for the paper on advertising trends and forecasts. Carlos says that he says the keys to his success are his passion and dedication to staying current by educating himself. He says very early in his career he moved from marketing to advertising seeking more challenge and an outlet for his creativity and, there, he happily found his passion. He proudly looks back at the time that he took the Nestle Company account and grew it so much in the LATAM market that the agency he worked for then were able to compete with the major players in the region. It is no wonder, then, that Carlos' future holds the title CEO of the company in the very near term. Carlos looks forward to connecting with his fellow Loyola graduates as well as others from universities around the world.
