Partner, Founder
Becky is the agency’s president as well as one of its founders. And Becky embodies the essence of the word “mambo”—high energy, movement, and passion. She’s especially passionate about creating an agency culture that encourages creativity, collaboration, respect for clients and peers, and a healthy, balanced life. It’s called the Mambo Magic—passion, commitment, and fun. Becky sees the vision, and as a master of both strategy and tactics, she can get clients there and beyond. Her philosophy is: do what’s right for the client and build the team to achieve the client’s’ goals. She’s done her time in the big-agency world, learning the ins and outs and finessing marketing and advertising to Hispanics. Being first and best at what she does is in the blood; her father was the first Latino inducted into the Baylor University Athletic Hall of Fame. Sic ’em, Bears!
