Our Story

Back in the Dial-Up Era, when browsers were the cutting edge, Donna Burke and Chris Hempel left their careers at Netscape to build one of the first tech PR firms focused on Silicon Valley.

Engineers, dreamers – those were their people. They hustled their way through the first bubble burst to bring to market many of the brands that dominate today’s hyperconnected world.

Over the past 20 years, Spark has helped define every major technology trend, from the birth of Web 2.0 to emerging quantum computers, partnering with everyone from pre-funded startups with a dream to Fortune 1000 companies striving to reinvent themselves. But you don’t become one of the world’s best tech PR agencies by resting on laurels.

At Spark, we turn technical advances into tangible visions. We look for the edge of what society thinks is possible, and that’s where we set up shop. We show the world that it can change more rapidly than most people imagine.

Under the current leadership of CEO Alan Soucy, Spark has grown into an international agency with a staff of savvy communicators and strategic advisors who scale growth across blockchain, financial, consumer, enterprise, and emerging tech.

By partnering with us, you’re engaging a team and our firm as a whole – decades of tech PR and marketing experience with a bespoke touch. So you can focus on what you do best. We’ll make sure the world sees the result.
