Founder & Owner

4Wise Monkeys

A half English – half Greek communications expert, who claims MARK-eting was named after him. In his previous life Mark led a successful career in Marketing, working for several multinational FMCGs in local, regional and global roles, such as Marketing Director in Diageo for White Spirits in Southern Europe, Marketing Manager for Johnnie Walker in Western Europe, Group Brand Manager Carlsberg Group, Global International Brand Manager Beiersdorf etc. It took him 12 years to finally realize that he was better at creating ideas rather than managing P&Ls.

Staying true to his mantra that “If you don’t have fun in your job you’re wasting your life” he co-created the 4 Wise Monkeys, one of the fastest growing creative agencies in Greece.

With an impressive portfolio of global and local clients e.g. Papadopoulou, Nissan, 3E, Beiersdorf, Gregory’s etc. and 115 major national and international advertising awards in less than years, the 4 Wise Monkeys have set out to prove that “Yes, there is such a thing as advertising that consumers … actually enjoy”

Mark is also a University professor of Advertising and Marketing, as well as the co-organizer and DJ of the biggest non-profit New Year’s Eve party in Greece, 18 years in a row!
