You will always find a book in her bag, you might run into her in Kung Fu championships (as a participant, not a viewer) and her unique personality wows you – a communications expert that is living life the simple way, appreciating arts and giving to causes that better the world.
Having graduated from the Communication and Culture Media Department of the University of Athens, with a strong aspiration to become a journalist, Myrto left for Paris to work on her master on Communication in Politics and see what else is out there. Her internship in France was bound to shift her interests towards research, monitoring and communication on behalf of big brands and governmental institutions and that led her to stay in Paris for three years, working on global and impactful projects, such as Barclays, Danone, ERDF, Guggenheim, ESA, Parti Socialiste, UMP and the Presidential Elections of 2012. Having discovered this whole new career prospect, she returned to Greece and joined Advocate, a PR agency in which, she managed the corporate communication of multinational companies, such as SEV, PepsiCo, Athenian Brewery, ΒΑΤ (British American Tobacco), Siemens and Baxter, always nurturing her soft spot for CSR practices.
Eventually, working with a social cause in mind brought her to Centre for Life, an organization that provides the necessary assistance to people living with HIV and their families, in which she was requested to build the Communication department from scratch. Myrto took on the challenge with excitement and created something that she and her team are proud of to this day. In her words, nothing is more rewarding than working on projects that serve a greater goal and have a significant social impact.
Having noticed that digital practices are the feature of communication, she joined Interweave, bringing her 10 years of experience, her excellent organization and team management skills and her deep understanding for communication to the table.
When she is not at the office, she works out, attends music festivals and writes on a blog about the theatre scene of Greece. If you want to meet her, ask her out for dinner – she adores good food and even better company!
Maybe it's not about happy ending. Maybe it's about the story
