Leading Latin America

October 2, 2013


The Latin Business Chronicle recently published a list of the “50 Top Businesswomen in Latin America” and you’ll find Marta Clark, Adobe’s vice president of Latin America, among these amazing women. This will be Marta’s third time on the list in recognition for her role in supporting the Latin American business, and serving as a leader in a field where women are vastly underrepresented.

Women on this year’s list come from an array of industries including oil and gas, banking, publishing, law, entrepreneurship, engineering, automotive, retail, and IT. Marta is named among luminaries including Maria das Gracas Silva Foster, CEO of Petrobras, Louise Goeser, President of Siemens Mesoamerica, and Claudia Sender, CEO of TAM.

Marta’s been with Adobe for 15 years. She began her career as a a distribution manager for the Caribbean and Central America region, then became distribution manager for all of Latin America, and was later offered the opportunity to run the regional team. Today, the region enjoys double-digit growth trends.

Marta’s Message to Women in Business

“Always have the customer in mind,” she says. “And keep in mind that the customer can be anyone you interact with.” She adds that as long as you keep the customer in mind, you’ll do the right thing.

Marta says she works hard to be involved in the Latin America region and that she is honored to represent Adobe in this effort. Networking and getting out of the day-to-day routine to watch and listen to what is going on within the countries of Latin America have been essential to her success.

Congratulations, Marta!
