Juli Ferre joins Omnicom Media Group as Head of FUSE Spain, and will be responsible for leading the launch of the brand in Spain.
FUSE is the OMG agency which specialises in sports & entertainment marketing, present in 12 international markets and headquartered in London. FUSE works with both brands and rightsholders; providing brands with end-to-end partnership solutions including strategic consulting services, partnership brokering and negotiation, activation and measurement, and supporting rightsholders with commercial product consultancy and go-to-market services.
Juli, who has 20 years’ experience in the sector, has worked with brands such as Cirque du Soleil, FIBA, FCBarcelona and AS Monaco FC among others. His expertise will be a huge asset for OMG in Spain – a country which ranks fourth in Europe terms of sponsorship investment and which has a high growth trajectory due to its hosting of major sporting events such as the America’s Cup Sailing in Barcelona this year, the FIFA World Cup in 2030 and the considerable growth in e-sports and gaming in the market.
Regarding his new role, Juli Ferre commented “Leading the launch of FUSE Spain presents an exciting opportunity to capitalise on the growing sports sponsorship market here. Sport has become an increasingly important part of today’s culture – so for brands this offers a big opportunity to drive deeper connections with their target consumers.”
Joan Jordi Vallverdú, CEO of Omnicom Media Group Spain, added: “It is a pleasure to announce the addition of Juli Ferre to our team as head of FUSE Spain, our sports and entertainment agency. Juli’s extensive sports experience will undoubtedly strengthen our commitment to excellence and innovation in this exciting growth area. We are looking forward to seeing the positive impact that this will generate for our clients as well as sports rights holders.”
Louise Johnson, CEO of FUSE, also commented: “We are delighted to welcome Juli Ferre into the Fuse global family. Spain will be a key market for our sports partnerships division and Juli’s wealth of experience will provide a significant advantage to unlocking this business opportunity for the group.”
