We are glad that Johan joins out creative team. He is a valuable creative, with an extensive international experience and we always tried to get international perspective to complete the native Romanian talent so that our works would be really competitive. During the last years, Saatchi & Saatchi was among the most awarded Romanian agencies at important advertising festivals: Cannes, Golden Drum, New York Festival. I am convinced this tradition will continue and we will see many exceptional works from Saatchi creatives under their new management
CEO Centrade Saatchi & Saatchi.
I am very happy that Romania is my new destination. Romania was “the subject of the year” at the most important advertising festivals in Cannes and Portoroz and I hope those results will influence in a positive way the current activities in agencies. One of my objectives is to create bold and creative campaigns that will generate very good results for Saatchi & Saatchi. My experience in new media and digital will prove useful in the present context, when digital is not just needed, but also fundamental in brands’ communication. No agency can survive without digital competencies and the same thing applies to clients also
