Julie set up Spark in 2007 alongside Justin with the aim of creating a forward thinking, strategic market research agency, and has enjoyed watching the company grow and blossom over the years. She has been determined throughout her career to make research more fun, innovative and engaging. She is never afraid to try new and different techniques and revisit ‘oldies but goodies’, hence her recent revival of her teenage roller skating days.
Whilst she is a Quallie at heart, she has a keen eye for numbers and sharpens her Quant skills by counting her large shoe collection, calculating spend vs enjoyment value. Her career has seen her work in small and large agencies across Ireland and the UK and her enthusiasm for research is as strong as ever and evident across all aspects of her work at Spark.
