CHICAGO, Feb. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- GolinHarris, part of Interpublic Group (NYSE: IPG), has formed a new network of offices in Latin America, representing a group of over 300 professionals in eight countries. The consolidated team of seasoned communications experts immediately establishes a strong presence in the region.

This expansion is led by Flavia Vigio, recently hired by GolinHarris to develop the agency's business in the U.S. and Latin America. A native of Brazil, Vigio previously served as vice president of Communications of Arcos Dorados, the company responsible for managing McDonald's in Latin America.

"Combining GolinHarris' innovative tools and structure with the deep knowledge of an experienced regional network creates immense opportunity. We now have a seasoned, integrated team that delivers the most important capabilities in communications."

The expanded reach for GolinHarris enhances work already being done in Latin America, with new capabilities and products for regional and local clients.

In conjunction with g4, products like the agency's award-winning Bridge for real-time marketing, and DeltaSet for ground-breaking measurement and analytics will now be rolled out in Latin America.
