Hello! I'm Andre Havro


Check out my articles published at Digital Agency Network - DAN


I help people and brands to grow their reputations, revenues, and social impact


I'm an internet pioneer specializing in marketing and branding strategy with digital and beyond-the-line experience on both the client and agency sides.

With over 25 years of experience in marketing and branding strategy, I have been at the forefront of digital communication since the dial-up age. In 1996 I founded one of the first digital marketing agencies in Brazil and co-founded the Association of Information Technology Companies - AETI, which helped to professionalize and qualify IT service companies in the late 90s.


I have worked in various positions in the median and multinational companies' marketing departments. In 2014 I founded my own vacation rental startup to help cottage owners generate income from their properties. I have also been a columnist for the Digital Agency Network from 2018 to 2020. 

A commitment to results, innovation, and professionalism has characterized my career. I have worked hard to stay at the forefront of digital trends and have used my knowledge to create successful strategies for clients on both the client and agency sides.

My involvement in organizations such as the Association of Information Technology Companies – AETI, Digital Agency Network, NPB - Brazilians' Networking Group (Canada), and MentorCruise demonstrates my commitment to developing the digital marketing industry since the 90s.

We successfully amplified brand visibility and fostered customer connections by implementing programmatic ads, PPC, and micro-influencers. The campaign garnered over 1 million impressions, generating qualified leads, and achieved an ROI of over 30%, resulting in significant sales growth in the face care product line.
