"There is a mentality on the Romanian market that can make you big when you go abroad, we do not agree, we want to show that the world can also overcome here.
Our ambition was to build an agency to grow talent that can compete all over the world, but at the same time be a destination for out-of-the-box talents with new opportunities.
And here I also refer to Romanians who want to return to the country, but also to foreigners who want to have the experience here. That is the only way to get the nursery & # 39; to overcome talent and constraints so that we can compete with everyone in the world as an agency.
Alex has an excellent experience at one of the most prestigious agencies in the world.

I decided to come back because I see how great it is to create something important here, the market is constantly evolving and I do not think it will slow down quickly, we just have to adjust to its requirements. And I think I can bring a lot of value here. I feel that Romania needs me and that my place is here.
The idea is to push the boundaries of technology for our customers as much as possible, to be always aware of what is going on and what is going on, to come up with prototypes and to experiment, so that we will show that Romania has its place on the global map of creativity.
At MRM everything happens much faster than I expected. Together with Ionela, Catalin and Simona Suman, I think we can grow much more than ever and that we can be more VET. "

Alex is the person who learns (as a result of his experience at agencies such as CPB or Cheil) how to work in mixed teams, how to connect ideas and technology, how campaigns can be structured and implemented in the future.
His teamwork is a natural step in the office and offers us the opportunity to develop as many prototypes and projects as possible, "concludes Ionela Buta.
