Olja Mataija

Communications and Marketing Coordinator

Contact: olja.mataija@rijeka2020.eu


After several years working as an independent professional on various projects, she decided to drop her anchor in the Port of Diversity.

Although a political science graduate, her love of communication took her freelancing in various areas of communication – from social network strategy development and writing media pieces, to copywriting and organising events. She organised festivals and conferences, smaller projects and European projects, international and national campaigns. At the moment, she is doing her postgraduate studies at the Zagreb University’s Faculty of Economics and Business with a thesis on the branding of the City of Rijeka as a tourist destination.

She firmly believes that the key to every successful relationship is good communication, she is looking forward to working in the Sector for communication and marketing; she envisions 2020 as a great festival that will enrich the citizens of Rijeka and the city itself in every sense.
