Bienvenido a Madrid! New Spafax Office Opens in Spain’s Capital

By March 10th, 2014

We’re thrilled to announce that Spafax Madrid is open for business!

Our new office – now Spafax’s 13th worldwide – will provide local support to the Iberia side of our recently won IAG account, as well as provide our global network of offices with locally produced Spanish content.

The setup of the new office was managed by industry heavyweight and Spafax Head of Production, Ed Oppe, who will maintain supervision of the Madrid operation.

“In our industry, time is a precious commodity” says Oppe. “Having a presence on the ground in Madrid allows us to provide fast and efficient service to our clients. There is also some really rich and unique content coming out of Spain at the moment and, with our new office, we’re well placed to pick it up and share it with the Spafax network.”

Spafax Madrid Team

The team in Madrid will be led by Iberia IFE Brand Manager Tom Burns. Tom brings with him extensive experience in content service strategy and planning having worked previously as a consultant for Spanish communication giant, Telefonica. Having already spent considerable time in Madrid and also Latin America, Tom’s local knowledge and cultural understanding is a great asset for Spafax.

Tom will be supported by our new Acquisitions Manager, Sara Simarro. Sara comes from a content background having previously worked at Imagina International Sales where she evaluated Spanish movies and TV content for international markets. Sara will be responsible for all local content and will also work closely with the British Airways team on non-Spanish content.

Saludos to Spafax Madrid!
