Roman Klis

CEO and Founder

Roman is a dedicated self-made man who is well known for his distinctive 'Juhu' spirit. Roman's optimistic attitude paired with his keen sense of people, design and for the mechanisms of the FMCG industry make him an outstanding expert in his business field. 

Being eight years old, he decided to follow into his grandmother’s footsteps and become a fashion designer. Shortly afterwards he got rid of his clothes and filled his closet with his own pieces of creation. Later on, a family friend and his personal mentor Murat Günak - former Head of Design of the Volkswagen Group - inspired him to study industrial design at the exclusive Art Centers in Montreux.
It was finally a job he took as a student in which Roman discovered his passion for brand and packaging design: he was designing labels for wine bottles for local vineyards. 
In 1995 he then founded the agency Roman Klis Design. He landed his international breakthrough only two years later when he created the global design for one of the most prestigious consumer brands in the world: Nescafé. Since then he has been developing successful brand stories around the world. While doing so, he constantly gains new local and global insights and spots the latest trends - all just waiting to be shared.

 

In his leisure time Roman loves to explore nature and traveling the world with his wife and three kids.
