Ladies and Gentlemen, let us introduce you to the queen of online shopping, the one who laughs at all of our s**t jokes, our CEO, Maria Bellissimo-Magrin.

Attitude isn’t everything. But it sure helps.

Maria certainly wouldn’t have become a CEO of a full-service creative marketing agency without it. While you’ll never hear her claiming to be a creative genius, with such a fantastic team at Belgrin backing her, it doesn’t take long for her clients to start throwing this term around. She started out in the industry 18 years ago and was quickly headhunted by Saatchi & Saatchi. In that time, she’s worked in Sydney, England and Bahrain.

For the last ten years she’s been at the helm of Belgrin – working to combine her vision and the firm’s class to create something greater and more meaningful than its parts. She’s done so well because she offers the perfect blend of design, PR and social media. Her aim? To make marketing easy, so you can spend your time on more important stuff.
