Managing Director Publicis Romania
The efficiency was improved considerably due to a rearrangement of the internal structure of the agency. For 2 years already, the Creative Department was structured on 4 groups, each lead by a Group Creative Director, while the Strategy and Digital departments were expanded, with focus on stimulating the work beyond the classical departmental functions.
Moreover, the agency continued its investments to extend its capabilities and resources in order to offer trade, Brand ID & Packaging development services and, especially, digital services.
The investments in insuring complete digital services, combining online and offline and integrating digital with the traditional resources of the agency generated an evolution that matches the plans we have
When it comes the campaigns signed by Publicis in the last 12 months, they combined successfully strategy, creation and digital with efficiency and innovation.
