Future Thinking France will continue to be headed up by president Stéphane Marder under the new ownership structure. In a statement, SPA Future Thinking said the French business had experienced “strong trading” in 2013, with revenue growing by 62% – although financial figures weren’t disclosed.

Marder (pictured) has lead the business since it launched in partnership with Groupe Acticall, a CRM specialist, in late 2012. He was previously managing director of LH2.

Commenting on the buyout, he said: “We’re very much looking forward to developing a stronger working relationship with SPA Future Thinking’s management team as we continue to grow, both as a company and within the market.”
