Vanda Zdvihal manages a 20-strong client team and is primarily responsible for setting up cooperation with the client on a process and personnel level, as well as setting up processes within the team, its management and development. Together with new creative director Michaela Pechanova and planner Kim Hofman, she will be involved in the development of the long-term communication concept for T-Mobile, the implementation of campaigns and specific projects for various segments, from product to CSR. 

Previously, she worked as Marketing Communications Manager for IKEA Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary. However, she has spent most of her professional life on the agency side. As Account Director at VMLY&R, she was involved in transforming the agency team towards integrated campaigns and strengthening digital know-how. She worked primarily on Česká spořitelna's campaigns - the award-winning #nechámsi, the Christmas campaign Darujeme české Vánoce and the launch of the #silnější platform. At TRIAD Advertising, she was at the birth of successful projects such as Patron for Gambrinus, which used a fake brewery to expose the prejudices of Czech beer drinkers, Girl in Yellow as an unconventional product placement in popular TV series for Jihlavanka, or Karel the robot for Kofola, teaching people to love.
