About Us

Leading Irish owned media planning and buying agency, Spark Foundry are experts in econometric modelling, research, data analysis, sponsorship and direct response measurement.

Our ownership structure allows us the best of both worlds. We are part of Publicis Groupe Media which gives us access to the highly respected benefits of a global leader. As local shareholders, we have the ability to invest in the business faster and more deeply than our competitors.

We believe that in order to deliver the best work for clients, we must ensure that we have the most engaged and enthusiastic staff. To this end, we have participated in the Great Place to Work programme, as part of Core, since 2009. For the third year running we have won the Great Place to Work award which is achieved by less than 50 companies in Ireland each year. In 2013 we placed 3rd out of all SMEs in the country.
