At the age of 17, Wágner started his first company, an independent record label that was responsible for the development of several seminal artists. Additionally, he was a pioneer in the online services field by creating Novus Online Services and ChatLink, paving the way for the Internet and graphics-based services like AOL.
Wágner’s experience spans over 20 years and includes digital + interactive, branding, entertainment marketing, retail marketing, experiential marketing, event marketing and promotional marketing. Prior to founding Beloved, he gained invaluable experience at such powerhouses as Momentum Worldwide, GMR Marketing, Euro RSCG 4DImpact, Sony/BMG and TVT Records.
Always active and involved, Wágner serves as past president of the American Advertising Federation-Orlando, former chair of the American Advertising Federation-Fourth District Communications Committee and is a frequent guest speaker on experiential and influencer marketing. Classically trained at the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music, Wágner spent 16 years in the music industry as both a recording artist and A&R executive. When Wágner is not working, which is rare, he is honing his photography skills, exercising his vocal chords, or tormenting the other team’s soccer goalie.
Great weather, new city and clean with lots of potential for the future.
