Spark Foundry Appoints MD of Global Business
Spark Foundry has appointed John Antoniades as Managing Director for Global Business. In his new role, which is effective immediately, Antoniades will be tasked with driving global growth for the newly rebranded agency, outside of the US.

A veteran of Publicis Groupe for more than 20 years, Antoniades has been fundamental in leading Publicis Media’s successful new business drive across the region, running the pitches for clients including Visa, Fiat Chrysler and Merck.
