Dr. Marko Majer is a seasoned marketing communications professional and business educator with over 30 years of international experience.

The agency team under his leadership and himself personally have received over 80 international awards for their work. The challenges of leading a diverse and demanding creative team have encouraged him to research the young generation, Millennials, as talent in the European advertising industry for hisdoctorate, which was subsequently also published in a book.
