Corinthians hires new marketing director

Corinthians have hired Marcelo Passoss as their new marketing director.

The 42-year old joins the Sao Paulo-based club from the DM9 advertising agency, where he was a vice president.

He replaces Izael Simon Junior at Corinthians and will be initially tasked with securing the renewal of the club's major sponsorship deal with the Caixa bank.

Corinthians finished fourth in the most recent edition of Brazil's Serie A, but currently top their group in the State Championships after three games. The club is currently unbeaten and defeated Botafogo 2-1 on Saturday.
