Retired Jadrolinija Coordinator Ante Mrvica Named Communicator of the Year

By 27 February 2018

ZAGREB, February 27, 2018 - Retired employee Ante Mrvica from the Jadrolinija shipping company was declared Communicator of the Year by the Croatian Public Relations Association (HUOJ), for his reliable, simple and direct communication with clients and users of the services of that company in Split.

Mrvica, a sailor and university professor, was a long-standing coordinator for ferry and shipping services in Dalmatia of the state-owned Jadrolinija company. He worked in the Port of Split for 27 years and media appreciated very much his reports and the way he provided information about a state of affairs in transport by sea. He retired last year.

Apart from Mrvica, other candidates for the Communicator of the Year were Science and Education Minister Blaženka Divjak, European Parliament member Biljana Borzan of the Social Democratic Party, Colonel Davor Turković, and authors of the Facebook profile "Di su pare" (Where's the money).

On 20 February, the HUOJ named Sisak Bishop Vlado Košić as Anti-Communicator of the Year for 2017, saying that Košić spread intolerance and used hate speech against specific political and social groups in the country.
