    Tribu DDB

    Restructured in Central America

    Deep in the folds of the 2008 financial crisis, we made the conscious decision to establish agencies in all of Central America (except Nicaragua) in association with DDB – one of the world’s largest and most influential advertising and marketing networks. By having local stakeholders in every country, we were able to create a network in the region. This initiative was then restructured to align with the varying models of each country between 2014 and 2015.

  • What we do

    Oller.Co is constantly changing and evolving.

    We’ve swapped business for finance and are keen to explore opportunities that bring significant value to the wider community, whilst being selective in our approach.

  • Our Beliefs

    At Oller.Co, we leave any prior assumptions behind.

    We don’t view businesses simply as transactions;

    we live and breathe values that go beyond our very selves.

    For this reason, we have a deeply ingrained philosophy – one that can be summed up conveniently with words beginning with “Co”:

    Co-Creation & Construction

    Every idea deserves to be listened to. Great ideas can rarely be cultivated in just one person’s mind. We innovate and conjure up ideas in a collaborative way, in turn making them into a reality.

    Collaboration & Comprehension

    Within the team, each member is just as important as the next. We believe in the power of synergy and constant collaboration.

    Coordination & Conciliation

    We’re tenacious in our approach to achieving our goals. By coordinating and planning task execution, we’re able to inch closer and closer to success.

    Contribution & Community

    Successful companies can’t thrive in failing societies. Everything we do contributes to the economy, to society as a whole, and to our people and families.

    More beliefs, ideas and information are available on the Slow Burn blog, running since 2005. You can also read more on La Nación and Huffington Post.
