"In the world of advertising, Alexandre Peralta rocks. When I found out he was the creative behind one of Pepsi's classic Beckham spots I invited his agency to take part in a pitch. After that, I have had the privilege of briefing him on different campaigns and his approach to any business challenge is simple, based on real insights and delivered with passion. An awesome professional and a person I continuously call when I need a different perspective. Being creative pays off." -- Carlos Ricardo, HP Head of Marketing Print Americas
