Jose Borghi was never sure about his career choice in school. One day, he tagged along with his sister to watch a screening of the popular ads that has won Lions Awards at Cannes in the world at a local theater.

He completed his graduation in marketing at the Pontifical Catholic University of Campinas in Sao Paulo State. After his graduation, he joined a marketing firm, Standart Ogilvy and some other firms namely DM9/DDB, Leo Burnett, FCB and Talent throughout his career.

Jose was not satisfied working for someone else and wanted to create something of his own. He went on to build an advertising agency with Erh Ray and named it BorghiErh.

Their company was bought by Lowe in 2006 and Erh sold his entire share to the company. The new company was then named Mullen Lowe, and Jose became its CEO.Borghi has been awarded many key Brazilian and international festivals which include 20 Cannes, 15 New York Festival, 7 London Festival, 12 Clios, 11 One Show and 16 Abril Awards which shows his passion for advertising and how he has lifted the standard for Brazilian advertising in front of the entire world.
