Resume

  • A certified accountant turned integrated Creative Director and Copywriter (true story)
  • Don’t call him ‘digital’. Along his 5 years of digital, he’s done 10 in traditional, so let’s say ‘integrated’
  • Great at building client relationships and nurturing junior talent
  • Only happy when producing a lot of work. The bigger the impact on a brand and consumers that work can have, the happier Radovan is.
  • Bad at creating ghost ads to win Lions

PS: English & German to Slovak advertising translator

2013 2013
Creative Director, Digital
SinnerSchrader
Leading a small creative team Radovan was responsible for smooth sailing of all global digital campaigns for the VW group automotive brand ŠKODA. At the same time, his task was to liason with the other agencies on ŠKODA’s global campaign roster – traditional, media, and CRM – making sure that every campaign turned out a well tuned symphony and not feel like 4 agencies worked on the campaigns. Even though they did.

Setting the first building block of Slovakia’s startup community. Organizing monthly events drawing a crowd of 150 people a night. Exporting the brand and concept to other cities in Slovakia and Czech Republic. Coming up with a funky job title.

Creative Director, Digital
Saatchi&Saatchi Slovakia
Only 6 months after joining one of the country’s most awarded agencies as a Senior Copywriter, Radovan was promoted to Creative Director, despite his halfhearted protests. With a team of 10 and a wide roster of clients spanning financial to FMCG the work spanned digital as well as traditional campaigns and resulted among others in the prestigeous EURO Effie effectiveness award for international launch of ZUNO bank’s brand. And although it was definitely a lot of fun to stand at the stage, Radovan’s most cherished accomplishment in this period was assembling a great team.

Senior English Copywriter, Creative
Publicis/Saatchi&Saatchi Austria
The most fun you can have while still wearing your pants is being part of T-Mobile’s international creative team for the CEE region. Especially in the era of the famous ‘Life is for sharing’ creative platform which pioneered real life event stunt campaigns (remember all the people dancing in Liverpool Street Station?) and candid camera shoots.

Ogilvy Slovakia
The first time Radovan was handed serious client-facing responsibility. On the agency’s second largest client, too. And a year later, successfully defended the AOR title in a multi-stage pitch, a.k.a. the two weeks when Radovan learned what’s it like to live on 3 hours of sleep.
