Valter Klug, CEO and Chief Creative Strategist at Samba Rock Marketing Consulting, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Executives for dedication, achievements, and leadership in advertising.
Mr. Klug has spent more than two decades as an advertising strategist, art director, and creative director for major companies and nonprofits across the globe. Born and raised in Brazil, he earned a Bachelor of Social Communications in advertising at Faculdade Casper Libero in 2002, and began his career as an art director for UmaCentral and interactive designer for AgenciaClick/Isobar. Mr. Klug spent the next five years as art director for Havas Worldwide Digital, then known as Euro RSCG 4D, before migrating to the United Kingdom in 2007 to accept a position with Sapient Interactive UK. In 2009, Mr. Klug relocated to Miami, where he continued to work with Sapient Nitro, first as a senior art director and then as associate creative director. He excelled as a digital creative director for Young & Rubicam from 2013 until 2015, when a sudden layoff pushed him to pursue his dream of opening his own firm.
Opened in 2015, Samba Rock Marketing Consulting was the result of his tireless work and ambition. He remains at the helm of the company as CEO and chief creative strategist, directly working with large brands from abroad that are expanding into the United States. In addition to his accomplishments with Samba Rock Marketing Consulting, Mr. Klug is a former instructor for the Miami Ad School. A self-described “workaholic,” Mr. Klug credits his success to his passion for creative work and dedication to finding a unique solution for each client. He has done consulting work for The Nature Conservancy, is the recipient of two Cannes Lions awards for his work for Nokia and Reckitt Benckiser, and was recognized with a 2019 Addy Award, the American Advertising Federation’s highest honor. In the coming years, Mr. Klug hopes to establish satellite offices of Samba Rock Marketing Consulting around the United States and to begin building an executive team that will enable him to focus on the growth of his business and have a better work and family life balance.
