PRINCIPLES & FOUNDATION
- 1We strive to be authentic in everything we do.
- 2Losing money is easy to turn around, losing our reputation isn’t. We guard it above all else.
- 3We believe in talent. Talent is our key to success.
- 4We want our talent to excel and develop to their fullest potential. So we help República employees and partners forge a path to the success that they desire.
- 5Our talent is compensated for the value they generate, not just the hours they work. We want our clients to compensate us this way too.
- 6We believe in a team approach to our work. Dedicated client teams are at the core of our business.
- 7We value people who accept responsibility and mean it when they say: “The Buck Stops Here.” We feel that our clients need to live by this philosophy as well.
- 8We’re transparent and have nothing to hide. We act ethically and are loyal to each other and to our clients.
- 9We understand that we’re not right for every client. We will resist the temptation to work for everyone and will only choose clients that inspire us.
- 10República focuses on creating value for clients with every move we make, every job we take.
- 11We believe in Great Work, Great People and Great Clients, which will naturally result in Great Growth. But we don’t pursue Growth by itself because it usually won’t result in Great Work, Great People and Great Clients.
- 12We will be compensated fairly for the value we provide and say no to unreasonable expectations. We’d rather turn down work than take on something that we can’t deliver at the highest level.
- 13Speaking of great work, we like the fun, exciting and fulfilling kind.
- 14Above All, somos familia. We believe in family, our own families and our República family. Everyone contributes to the vision, goals and purpose of República because this is the purpose of it all: To create something great and share it with the people we love.
República was founded in 2006 with a simple yet intricate directive – to create relevant, insight-driven communications designed to captivate consumers across language and culture. Easier said than done. But by combining decades of experience with a culture of unbridled creativity and unparalleled results, agency co-founders Jorge A. Plasencia and Luis Casamayor have turned what began as a friendship into one of America’s leading cross-cultural idea incubators.
A former media, sports and entertainment executive, Jorge’s career has been marked by its share of successes – from becoming the first director of Hispanic marketing for the Florida Marlins during their 1997 World Series championship run, to serving as an executive at Estefan Enterprises alongside international entertainers Gloria and Emilio Estefan. Jorge was also intimately involved in the careers of artists Shakira and Gloria Estefan during the Latin music “explosion” of the late '90s, all before going on to leadership roles at Univision Radio, the country's largest radio network serving U.S. Hispanics.
Luis’ career began at an equally young age with the launch of Cosmyk, an advertising, design and marketing agency founded while he was still in his twenties. Already a seasoned marketer, in a few short years Luis helped propel Cosmyk into one of the most cutting-edge creative and design firms in Miami, boasting a roster of prestigious clients from Miami to New York, Las Vegas and Latin America.
At República, Jorge and Luis have built a team of world-class leaders that live by ethics, trust, loyalty and a responsibility for fostering ideas that yield results – all with the same passion for great clients, great people and great work. But the República story is also one of caring for community, with an understanding that it is our duty to give back to organizations like Amigos For Kids, a non-profit that Jorge co-founded over 20 years ago. We consider our volunteer and pro-bono efforts central to our success and inherent in our culture. And ultimately, to our future.
