MAGNET Global Independent Agency Network Welcomes New Member República in Miami

República, a cross-cultural advertising, branding, promotions, digital and communications agency based in Miami, Florida, recently joined the ranks of the MAGNET Global independent agency network.

República, a minority-owned company, is one of the fastest-growing agencies in the U.S., with expertise across industries that includes food service, grocery, retail, spirits, health care, media, telecommunications, nonprofit, education and electronics. The agency won more than 30 ADDY Awards in the two years alone, and was ranked by Advertising Age magazine as one of the “Top U.S. Agencies from All Disciplines” and one of the “Top 35 Hispanic Agencies.” The regional, national and international brands it counts among its clients include ABSOLUT, Nielsen, Goya Foods, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Baptist Health South Florida, Chivas Regal, Universal Orlando Resort, Sedano’s Supermarkets and Univision Communications.

“On the cusp of our fifth anniversary, timing is ideal for República to join MAGNET, the most respected independent agency network in the world,” said Jorge A. Plasencia, chairman and CEO of República. “Our successes are tied directly to those we serve and work with, and we are confident this affiliation will create new opportunities as we collaborate with and learn best practices from many of the leading agencies in United States and across the globe.”

The expertise of República’s bilingual, bicultural staff lends tremendous insight to the growing MAGNET Global network, according to Cheri Gmiter, MAGNET’s executive director. “República has grown exponentially in this economy due to their unrelenting pursuit of delivering at highest level for their clients, and serving as the touchstone for brands seeking to understand how to connect successfully with the country’s expanding multicultural majority,” stated Gmiter.
