Our newest account manager, a former journalist and a recovering control freak, is a perfect fit for our client service team. An Athens native, she worked as a journalist for 5 years in both print and online publications, but realized that she was more interested in other fields of digital communications, which at that time were emerging at a stunning rate.
Thus, she left Athens to pursue an MA in New Media at the Utrecht University, a city which offered her a new way of looking at things, and two wonderful years of student life abroad. She is also one of the few thousand people that can boast about having broken the world record for the most redhead people in one place during the Redhead Days in Netherlands in 2012. With an enthusiasm for sci-fi books and movies, she completed her studies with a master thesis titled ‘Cyborgs in an Augmented World’ and then returned to Athens, for she knew all along that this is where she belongs.
After her MA she followed her interest and curiosity in digital communications, as she joined agencies and brand teams working on social and digital channels for clients such as Pepsi-Co and Nestle. Nonetheless, it was her management skills that brought her to the client service department, a role she soon discovered to be more fulfilling. Today, with 6 years of combined experience in digital marketing, she enjoys being surrounded by people who share the same passion for the advertising industry, so she has definitely found her spot in Interweave.
