    Diego Scotti | Collecting Experiences, Not Titles

    Diego Scotti | Collecting Experiences, Not Titles

    You could call it serendipitous that Diego Scotti would one day end up as VP of Global Advertising and Brand Management for American Express. As a child, AMEX quite literally saved him and his family during a trip abroad after they lost their passports – but Diego would call it a learning experience (one he says is part of a collection that make up his career). He calls them that because he feels a person's career should be about gaining knowledge not a ladder that must be climbed from one position to the next. In addition to American Express, Diego held executive marketing positions at J.Crew and Vogue magazine. He is currently the EVP and CMO of Verizon, a role he has held for the last 5 years. In 2007, Ad Age named Diego in their list of Marketing Top 40 Under 40 list. 

    In this discussion, Diego talks deeply about his career and why he thinks loyalty and partnerships are so important when it comes to a client's relationship with agencies. Plus, the two have a poignant talk about Diego's late father who fought for democracy in Argentina.
