BCD Meetings & Events Announces Ana Paula Hernandez as VP of Latin America
Ana Paula Hernandez joins BCD Meetings & Events (BCD M&E) as Vice President for Latin America. Hernandez re-joins BCD M&E after spending three years as Regional Director, Latin America & Caribbean, for American Express.
Hernandez’s experience within the region, the industry and BCD is significant. Prior to joining American Express in 2015, Ana spent eight years at BCD M&E in a variety of roles. Most notably, as the Country Manager for BCD M&E Mexico, managing the day to day business of their largest market in the region and acting as liaison into the region for what was a rapidly growing customer base.
“Ana Paula is a well-respected and admired industry leader within the market and the region and will be a strong advocate for our employees, customers, and partners as we continue to expand our presence in Latin America,” said Bruce Morgan, SVP Meetings Management & LATAM.
The timing for Ana’s return comes on the heels of BCD M&E’s strongest, regional financial performance ever in 2018. Poised for continued growth, the move is set to make BCD M&E the most admired event agency in Latin America.
“I’m thrilled to be back at BCD M&E to help propel the region into its next phase. BCD M&E’s growth over the past few years is impressive. I’m eager to bring unmatched service to clients in Latin America,” said Hernandez.
