Sergio SANCHO PHILEAS PRODUCTIONS
| Founder & Managing Director
I had the opportunity to study and get my International Business degree in the U.S. thanks to tennis. Many years playing and training hard was not enough to become Nadal, but it was enough to get a scholarship, and complete my studies for free whilst doing what I enjoy most: Playing tennis and competing. Then it was time to go back home, and discover the exciting world of advertising, that was a hard workout!!! Many hours, many ideas, and only 20 seconds to deliver them, but it was this limitation that leads us to want more time (45 minutes for example) and that’s how we founded Phileas Productions. Here I can enjoy creating new ideas even if they seem too crazy, without forgetting that we must sell new concepts and grow year after year
