Mario Betancur

Executive Creative Director at Cj Martins
Manizales, Colombia


A life full of traveling experiences, 14 years of experience to carry out most of my career in agencies such as Ogilvy And Mather, Sístole Bbdo and Sancho Bbdo working for brands like the UN, Bancolombia, Visa, Kia Motors, Tuenti and Postobón. I have been a Senior Copy, Creative Director and award-winner in festivals such as Cannes Lions, Clio and Effie Latam, but my best award has been working on something that allowed me to see the world in a different way and, get to know it traveling through Colombia, Ecuador, Perú and México. It made me even more curious about nature, art and good stories so I left my country to learn about castles and legends in Ireland, well, and their language too, touring the mills in Holland, surfing in Portugal, trying Spanish Tapas, having some glasses of wine and cheese in France, realizing that the Smurfs were created in Belgium, harvesting olives in Italy, taking selfies in the pantheon in Greece and watching the 2022 World Cup as closest to Qatar as possible, in the United Arab Emirates.

Now I am back in Colombia working to Cj Martins an independent agency that believed in my talent since 2023 to win different Pitch and grow makes me part of their company as Executive Creative Director.
