People of Sparkcade

Sparkcade is a group of accomplished marketing and communication professionals with 35-plus years of experience spanning a wide range of disciplines.

An amalgam of corporate, agency, startup and venture capital positions have afforded them the opportunity to showcase both depth and breadth in marketing and communication. We separate ourselves from other firms because we’ve spent many years walking in your shoes.

Too many firms treat you like a client. We work alongside you like a teammate.

Through our experiences, we bring you expertise in brand creation and management, strategy development, digital marketing (including SEO and SEM), public relations, change management, executive communications, event management and social media.

Equally adept in industries from entertainment to highly regulated verticals, we put the “fun” in funnel and know how to weave a compelling story for even the most daunting project.
