2011

Account Manager

BBDO

Mar 2009 - Jul 2011
  • For most of my time at the agency, I was deeply involved with the telecoms account of Forthnet Group. Working within a dedicated team on the leading account for the agency, I handled the development and delivery for 360 campaigns for the brand. Acting as one business unit with the creative, media and production departments, was essential to effectively communicate the brand story in an ever-changing telecoms landscape. Our campaigns were driven by a dig idea that was then rolled out to TV, Radio, Outdoor, Retail outlets and online. Year on year growth results for the brand was truly rewarding. In the two years that I worked on the account the brand managed to double its client base.

  • At the start of my career, I was engaged in the account of BMW Group by supporting the dealer network during product launches and events. In 2008, with as many as 15 launches (across BMW, MINI and Motorrad), the brand managed to achieve record sales in the Greek market. This was a fantastic first year for me in the industry. I managed the delivery of ATL, Outdoor, Radio, POS and TVC campaign adaptations for the entire network ensuring compliance of the global brand guidelines and providing the right communication mix for every dealer. 10% of my time was dedicated to the management of PNG Pharmaceuticals communications. Regular client requests included: photo shoots, custom touch point productions and conference endorsement for the execution of concepts intended to communicate pharmaceutical products to medical professionals.
