Take the time to get to know us, the root of our knowledge, and the
cultural understanding of the American society of the 21st century.
AVD Marketing, under Andre Doren, is passionate about establishing meaningful and sustainable relationships between your brand and the U.S. general and Latino markets.
"We base our work in a simple philosophy:
innovative brands become sustainable when all populations are considered and included in today's digital world, communicating under the same platforms and protocols. These brands will lead the way into the 21st century and will become part of our diversified society."
At AVD, Andre provides the entrepreneurial and operationally focused marketing and branding leadership that has made him an influential cultural change agent and a skillful and successful brand architect.
"I believe that the most exciting task ahead of us, and the essence of AVD, is the opportunity to bring brands into a diverse and multicultural world without losing the brand's identity, image or perception among the general population.
"I believe that embracing the US general and Latino market today is stepping into the future, especially the Latino population, which is becoming a more powerful consumer market, political group, and influential culture in the United States of the 21st century."
Before AVD, Andre created, launched, and managed marketing architectures and brands in senior marketing roles managing broad domestic and global markets for companies like United Colors of Benetton in the Americas, NationsHealth and Cigna in the U.S., and global pharmaceutical companies like Bioseutica and KD Pharma
