We have our fair share of jokes about Zlatan, our president and CEO. There has never been such a dynamic, colourful person. He is so full of ideas and has the kindest heart of anyone you will ever meet. He is so unpredictable. He is the kind of man that will skateboard in dress shoes, mow the lawn in a suit, and drive a dog sled to work. He walks into a room, and his warm demeanor and fearless handshake puts everyone at ease. He is the kind of boss that helps us to know we can be, or do, anything we want to do. This was a very special weekend as Zlatan celebrated his 20 year anniversary in Canada. Congratulations Zlatan! We are so thankful to have you here.
Over the weekend, we held our annual fall retreat at Camp Lutherland, and had the honour of celebrating Zlatan’s anniversary in Canada with him. Adorned in red #BECAUSEZLATAN shirts, we all shared with him how he has made us more successful, sang our national anthem proudly, and in true Zlatan fashion, went on a not-so-leisurely hike that seemed to be uphill the whole way, and caught some amazing views. Zlatan pushes us to be our best, and we love to be pushed by him.
In 20 short years, Zlatan started and built this marketing agency, gathering a team of exceptional professionals around him. His approach to leadership, management, team-building, and risk have built us into employees that think like owners – and from having jobs into having careers.
