Three significant appointments have been made at Spark Foundry, part of Core, to provide further strategic and digital expertise to clients. Led by managing director Sandra Alvarez, Spark Foundry is one of four Media teams in Core, with clients including the HSE, Three Ireland and the Road Safety Authority.

Antaine Conway has sat on the board of Starcom, part of Core, from 2015-2019 before helping build another Media team, Zenith, as the strategy director. She has over 15 years’ experience in the media and marketing industry from client leadership, team management and strategic delivery with sectorial knowledge across Tourism, Financial Services, Retail and FMCG. Antaine will join Spark Foundry in May 2022, upon returning from maternity leave.

Joining Antaine on the board will be Gemma Gilmore who started her career with Spark Foundry in 2010. Collaborating at an industry level, Gemma joined the IAPI board in 2017 and led initiatives to encourage young adults to join and succeed in the industry. In 2021 she was one of the recipients of the IAPI Future Females programme, which awards those who demonstrate their potential leadership abilities.

Spark Foundry’s third appointment is Meabh Connellan who will join the team as a Senior Digital Strategist. Having spent over a decade in Vizeum and Dentsu, leading on digital strategy, Meabh has extensive experience collaborating across the industry, speaking, and contributing to the digital expertise of the market. She will work with Spark Foundry’s key clients to drive their digital success.

Speaking about the three appointments, Sandra Alvarez, managing director of Spark Foundry said: “We are delighted to have such talent join our senior leadership team. It is wonderful to be able to partner with Antaine who has collaborated with people across Core, to continue to work with Gemma who knows Spark so well and to introduce the talents of Meabh to our team and to our clients. 2022 will be a year full of opportunities.”
