Alice Gavril takes over as Managing Partner of Romanian Godmother, taking over the leadership role of the brand experience agency from Valentin Văcăruș, who will remain involved in Godmother‘s new business initiatives and focus on the development of the group’s companies, as well as the agency’s own projects and tools, some of which are set to be officially launched in the near future.

Valentin Văcăruș, Partner Godmother:

“From the beginning of our collaboration, I found in Alice an excellent partner with a strategic vision, hard work, and dedication that few can match. Together, we have consistently and sustainably grown the Godmother business, something I know she will continue to do with the same passion and professionalism moving forward”

A professional with 19 years of experience in the field of communication, Alice Gavril is a shareholder in the agency and has overseen the Client Service department at Godmother for the past six years. She has been actively involved in both the business and communication strategy throughout this time, making this transition a natural step in the agency’s evolution.

“I enthusiastically accepted the role of Managing Partner because I found myself at a point in my career and life where I felt I could make a difference. I had entered a comfort zone, excelling in the communication activities I was involved in, and I felt that I could be a captain, not just a ‘product.’ In my six years of experience with Godmother, I can proudly say that I contributed to solidifying the agency’s reputation as a brand experience agency. We faced the shock of the pandemic’s impact on BTL businesses through rapid adaptation and innovation, and I am eager to continue building upon this foundation and assist the agency in its ongoing growth, innovation, and success for our clients”

Alice Gavril’s new role within Godmother is a multifaceted one, which encompasses not only the operational management of the agency but also the ongoing coordination of the Client Service department, as well as overseeing the business and communication strategy, talent growth, and active involvement in the pitches that Godmother participates in.

We will continue to invest in three pillars that I consider essential for sustainable growth: amplifying the meaning behind our slogan “brand experience artisans,” talent growth & wellbeing, as well as developing (alongside Valentin) and integrating our innovative products into the portfolio, aimed at bringing efficiency and results to both us and our clients.”
