Managing Director

Sascha KURFISS


A hybrid whizkid in digital and classic advertising, Sascha got his start in Germany in 1998 at Sommer+Sommer, JWT and Scholz & Volkmer. Each honed his skills in every medium before eventually taking up a position in JvM.

Sascha followed his interest in Asia to Beijing, where he built up JvM’s business in China before moving on to do the same in Avantgarde. A man of mixed interests, he enjoys throwing people around during aikido as much as relaxing to the soothing sounds of metal band Helloween.

When he isn’t busy surprising people around him, as well as himself, with fast forward ideas, he’s trying to fulfill his need for speed on a motorbike, in a car or on a snowboard. Want him to shut up? Take him scuba diving and you’re guaranteed at least 45 minutes of peace in return.
