Ioana Mucenic

I have created pastel, together with Dana, when I was 21. There were 10 great years, we worked a lot and we had success that intimidated even from the start. Meanwhile, we grew up and evolved in different directions (…) That is why each will apply her own plans and vision. In my heart, pastel will always be the company I founded during University and which represented a huge part of my life

Ioana has 13 years of experience in communication and management, from which 10 in her own agency. During all this time, Ioana insured also the strategic component of agency’s clients. Together with the team, she developed sizable campaigns at local and regional level. Ioana is a certified trainer of Charted Institute of Marketing.

After Ioana’s exit, the agency will be managed by Dana Nae Popa, managing partener & business developer. Dana aims to continue the ascending trend the agency had constantly during the last few years

Ioana will remain an important person in pastel’s history and we wish her a lot of success in the future. This way, after almost 10 years since founding, the agency reaches to a new stage. I am looking forward with enthusiasm the new challenges and, together with the strong team from pastel, we will continue the beautiful direction we had until now
