With the promise of more to come in the EMEA region, the offices seamlessly integrate with the Sparks global network which spans from Philadelphia to San Francisco to Shanghai and beyond.

Sparks will combine big agency resources with small agency love, to transform casual observers into loyal brand champions through unforgettable moments that last long after the experience ends. The Sparks leadership team in EMEA includes Adam Charles, Global Chief Growth Officer, Jason Megson, SVP of International Business and Marianne Vendelbo, VP of International Business. Trin Basra as VP Executive Creative Director, EMEA will drive creativity and leverage Sparks’ creative talent across the region. They will lead an 80-strong team as part of the 1,300-strong global Sparks workforce.

Their ambition is to reduce complexity for clients who want to deliver business impact in the region.
