Angelides named Spark Foundry chief innovation officer

Publicis Media's Spark Foundry has announced the hire of Marcos Angelides as its new UK chief innovation officer and head of strategy.

The news comes after the merger of Blue 449 into the Spark Foundry brand at the start of this year and will see Angelides take responsibility for combining Spark Foundry’s data technology capabilities with designers and creatives to uncover fresh opportunities for the agency.

Angelides joins from OMD where he co-led a department of 14 people in his position as managing partner of strategy. He will report directly into Lindsay Turner, Spark Foundry UK CEO.

During that time, he was responsible for the strategic output of accounts including Google, Levi’s, Sony Pictures, Clark’s, Bacardi and Tourism Ireland.

“I'm very excited to be joining the agency as it continues strong momentum from the merger, especially under an inspirational leader such as Lindsay," Angelides said. "The opportunity to work with her was a big factor in my accepting the role.”

Turner added: “I can’t wait to get Marcos stuck in with our clients and to join our senior leadership team. With Marcos driving our strategy and innovation, I can guarantee that we really will be supercharging our offering to clients. It’s a really exciting time to be joining the agency.”

Angelides starts 23 March.
