Jeremy Stern, founder and Managing Director of PromoVeritas

Posted in: Interviews

Jeremy Stern is the founder and Managing Director of PromoVeritas. In his previous role as European Promotions Director of Coca-Cola, he saw a gap between the brilliant ideas of creative agencies and their clients who wanted to follow the rules and regulations for promotions. Hiring a lawyer was expensive and few had the necessary knowledge. As a result, many promotions were run casually and with limited respect for the laws. Whilst many others were busy setting up creative agencies, and frequently shutting them due to competition, PromoVeritas chose to operate in a niche and has grown and prospered. It now operates globally, has over 200 active clients and runs over 1500 campaigns a year.
