José Borghi of Mullen Lowe Brasil
Jose Borghi is one of the two great minds behind Mullen Lowe, a very successful Brazilian advertising agency. Borghi along with Erh Ray began this company after he had had enough of being employed. With the little savings they had, they started BorghiErh. Years later, Borghi was to buy out Ray’s shares, leaving the total ownership of the company to Borghi. That was back in the year 2006. At this point, Borghi renamed the company to Borghi Lowe. However, Ray continued to serve with him as a president of the company. The company has grown to be one of the most reputable advertising agency in the nation. It has since changed name to Mullen Lowe and was in the recent past acquired by Lowe & Partners and Mullen Group on adsoftheworld.com.
