Spark Foundry rebranded from Mediavest | Spark a little more than two years ago, so Campaign US decided to catch up with Chris Boothe, the agency’s global brand president, to hear what’s up at the Publicis Groupe shop and more.
Since the rebrand in July 2017, Spark Foundry has been on a steady growth path. Last year, total billings increased to $6.6 billion from $6 billion the year before, and the agency added clients such Audible, Campbell’s, Lenovo, Macy’s, Marriott, Mondelez, NBCUniversal, Panera and Telemundo.
