Cambo’s “captain” is an actual, certified sailor. And Pilates trainee. And marathon runner. And Longboard skater… You get the picture – Kriton is the embodiment of a healthy, active lifestyle, an ideal that the rest of team struggles to follow, keeping a safe distance from all that activity hopping. He also excels in operating simultaneously as a creative innovator and a technology officer, a rare combination indeed. His kryptonite is his smoking habit, though he always pretends he is in the process of “immediate renouncement”.
Having arrived in Cambo from a long career in advert agencies, Elianna draws on her knowledge of “Deep Marketing”™, dazzling old and new clients alike with her fancy terminology, hip buzzwords and lustrous presentations. Equally impressive are her cooking recipes, beating down most food bloggers in both taste and hipsterish aura. She literally got the short end of the stick in life, but she has countered her gnomish height with amassing all the knowledge of the world, like a walking version of a quiz show, ever annoying, and ever useful.
If words could really kill, Katerina would be a world renowned assassin, rewriting the creative murder handbook and breaking all kill counts – she’s that effective. Fortunately for the world, she spends her days operating the Ideas & Copy Factory in Cambo, production in full blast, no brakes attached. She has been doing this for so long that people assume she honed her multi awarded skills doing marketing work. In reality, the source of her creativity lies in her childhood, where she spent her early years in an isolated rural province, making friends with all sorts of bugs and critters, sharpening her imagination to last through the harsh winter winds…maybe.
Vassiliki is a well versed project manager and chief office administrator at Cambo. She is capable of getting results (eg. finding where the stapler is) by using her “unique” methods of persuasion (eg asking you where the staple is, a thousand times straight) and that makes her highly efficient – and dangerous to anyone that dares rattling her cage. She is also the go-to project manager for some of the more female oriented brands: when it comes to lip brushes and hair beautifiers, Vassiliki is your woman.
Senior Account Director
If Elianna is the what-is-what of the office, Claire is the who-is-who. The new account director of Cambo shares a common point of contact with literally EVERYONE, like a version of “Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon” for ad agencies. Let us put it this way: we don’t know who you are, but we know Claire knows some of your people. And when you’re lucky enough to finally get to work with her, don’t forget to ask her about her grandad, and the songs of his you like the most.
Senior Account Director
After years of experience in big global agencies, Theodore joined Cambo’s heavy machinery of account management. A creative mind, a deep strategic thinker, a tireless question generator, a caustic humorist. Yet, his biggest weapon is his poker face. You can never be sure whether he is stressed – which is like never – or just excited about a new business. His calming and soothing personality always inspires confidence in the whole team. Theodore is a Negroni lover with fine Italian taste, a mere vinyl collector and a true gentleman. He owns a big collection of shirts which he matches according to project and client, although he has never admitted that.
Head of UI/UX
A basketball star – turned web designer superstar after a horrible ski accident (some parts of the aforementioned information may be slightly untrue), Vassilis now spends his days trying to reach new hights, not by jumping, but by implementing design’s coolest new trends in Cambo’s projects. He still takes part in the occasional ball game, showing newbies how it’s done.
Senior Systems Administrator
Leondis makes sure everything in the office works as intended. This means he gets his hands dirty with all sorts of trouble that the rest of team can’t even touch, from server workload setups to repairing the (always broken) filter coffee machine. This also means that he is a self-appointed expert on everything, and by far the grumpiest person in the office. Where he truly excels though, is at gardening: you really won’t find a prettier, more aromatic basil plant anywhere else in the capital.
Tame, cheerful and always positive, he reminds us of the times before we were exposed in the merciless tortures that go along with living in the ad agency world. He is also a big videogames aficionado – he likes the wrong games apparently, but that’s alright.
Eleni is a former acrobat and a DIYer and also a very active creator, from handmade fimo jewellery to decorative items/furniture and sewing. Creating digital and on paper illustrations, her dream job was to work in Pixar so she selected Cambo as the first step! While waiting to move to Hollywood she likes reading books. She is keen on interior design and a declutter and space organisational “freak”.
Marsia is so much more than a Social Media Manager. First of all, she speaks social in 4 languages (or 3 and a half as she modestly claims). With a political studies background, Marsia is famous for her extreme organisational skills. A proper Marie Condo of to-do lists and a fierce trend hunter, this restless young lady never stops browsing the web for anything new and never stops learning. When she finds some time to herself she will definitely read a self-improvement book and travel to the Northern Lights. Marsia doesn’t drink coffee or alcohol. At least not yet.
Senior Art Director
A great taste guy, an art lover, a kind smile, Konstantinos is our fashion icon and our very talented art director. In his free time he paints little masterpieces and decorates spaces. He loves cycladic architecture, but we all know he is a city guy. You should visit his instagram account for a totally different perspective of things. Try looking sideways!
Senior Account Manager
Raised by the sea, a free spirit and our serotonin boost, Miltos joined our team as a Senior Account Manager. Rumor has it that he obtained his permanent tan, after working for so many years in Experiential Advertising. He is passionate about big projects and always ready to provide a solution. He hates it when people are being rude, so no candy (that he constantly brings at the office) for you if you are not well-behaved.
If “superfast copywriter” was a job title Maria would definitely own it. Hard working, persistent and extremely talkative, our Maria is also very caring towards her colleagues. She loves to organize her tasks (and Cambo’s kitchen sometimes) and has a thing for dogs, especially her own. Maria is allergic to strawberries and vague briefs. Lucky for her, she won’t find any of the latter here.
Social Media Manager
Silia, our new Social Media Manager, is the epitome of social media savvy.
Growing up around the family bookstore cultivated her love for always learning something new and made her into this inquiring, natural born trend hunter that she is today. So young yet so well-travelled, Silia visited 9 different countries – all while studying, trying to figure out the diversity of different cultures and markets – at least that’s what she said. Silia loves the “laiki” market in Exarchia – omg this girl never stops looking for fresh stuff!
Marianna, our young and restless account manager, is literally a walking feast. Always in a good mood, full of energy and ready for action. Beware of her cheesy lines though! Marianna loves bad jokes, so the worst wordplays could come out of her mouth. She loves challenges and facing her fears. That’s why she practices pole dancing, rugby and juggling some of our most demanding clients. She also loooves animals. All kinds. That’s why she is vegan. Firm and disciplined. We tried to give her burgers. She doesn’t break.
Junior Art Director
Andreas or Andrew or Andrew Van Dort is true artist and a style icon. Our young and talented art director was raised to love arts, galleries and museums. His designs, created with finesse, are inspired by animals, nature, fashion, music. And the client’s brief of course. Andrew is the only art director -of Cambo – who has met Lady Gaga in person. He says he doesn’t sleep much, because he wants to live his dreams in reality. We just think he likes to party.
Social Media Manager
Marianna is the latest Gen X force that joined our team. This young princess of the North (she comes from Thessaloniki) is an expert in Communication, who likes to meet new people and discover their stories. So, beware of her questions! She might find out everything about you. She is curious but always discreet, polite and helpful. According to her colleagues, Marianna is a real slow eater. She likes to cook and binge watch countless series. Marianna loves lists. All sorts of lists. Her day starts and ends with tasks and to -do’s. This short bio has been checked off her list. Phew!
Chief Executive Dog
Aleka is the most high-profiled employee of Cambo. She was recruited literally from the tops (of Mount Pelion). She started off as Barking Manager and soon got promoted to CED due to her extreme loyalty. Her tasks are mainly eating anything, playing with anything, barking at anything and receiving strokes round the clock. She excels in all!
