Hawk, a leading European player in omnichannel digital communication, with an established presence in France, the UK and Germany, is to further strengthen its footprint in Europe with the expansion into two new markets.

The company is opening an office in Spain (Madrid), which will be led by Zdenka Prieto, who joins from Axel Springer Spain; previous positions include sales director at economics publisher, Revista Capital and sales manager at business publisher, elEconomista.  Prieto will be supported in her role to develop Hawk’s adoption in the Spanish market by Teresa Orellana, previously advertising director at Bluemedia.

Hawk is also expanding into Belgium; its new Brussels office will be headed up by Aline Gervasi, who was formerly country manager at performance marketing operation Kwanko, and head of programmatic at native content specialist, Ligatus before that. 

Prieto and Gervasi will report directly to Nicolas Sistac, recently promoted to chief revenue officer at Hawk.

The new commercial operations are part of Hawk’s long term development strategy. Launched in Paris in 2013 and supported with an R&D department in Montpelier (France) the company opened its UK office in 2015 and its German entity in 2016. Since opening its doors, it has grown to become a key player in the European digital advertising market, with a client roster that includes major agency groups and global brands.

Originally built for mobile, Hawk’s technology now enables advertisers to execute multi-channel strategies across mobile, digital audio, digital out-of-home (DOOH), connected TV (CTV), in-game advertising and the metaverse.

Zdenka Prieto, managing director of Hawk Spain, says:
