Miami, Florida — The Bravo Group recently was integrated into the existing Young & Rubicam and Wunderman operations in Miami.  The merger results in one of the larger agencies in Miami, with over 70 employees.

“With their combined expertise and success in targeting the U.S. Hispanic and Latin American markets, it is a natural fit to join these operations to better serve our clients,” said Eddie Gonzalez, Chairman and CEO of The Bravo Group. “The synergy resulting from this integration allows the combined teams to be more client-focused while operating more efficiently; at the same time we will be in a better position to compete and win business in Miami and nationally.”

Leading Bravo Miami will be Eric Hoyt, president of Young & Rubicam Miami and Wunderman Miami.  Hoyt is an industry veteran with over 20 years in the agency and marketing communications fields, including 17 years with Young & Rubicam and Wunderman in Latin America and the U.S. 

“Our focus continues to be superior skills and capabilities for an increasingly complex marketplace,” said Mr. Hoyt.  “By evolving and expanding our service offering, Bravo Miami and our entire operation are in a better position to provide integrated communications solutions which generate superior business results.”
