Of the appointment of Kranik, who was recently named to Ad Age's Women to Watch list, LatinWorks CEO and Co-Founder Manny Flores said: "No one has played a more important role in the development of our culture and the growth of our business than Christy. Her managerial qualities and relentless client focus will serve us well as we continue the process of strengthening our agency's offering."
Of Garcia's appointment, LatinWorks CMO and Co-Founder Alejandro Ruelas said: "Gabriel is an exceptionally talented creative leader. His people and client skills are only rivaled by his creative qualities. Under his leadership we are confident that our creative product will evolve to be more progressive and consistently effective with the demands of our marketplace."
LatinWorks is the largest Hispanic agency in the country, according to a 2014 report in Advertising Age.
