As CEO of Action Global Communications, Chris oversees operations across the Group’s entire network from Brussels to Dubai and beyond. With almost 20 years’ experience in the industry, he has built a rich understanding of the cultural intricacies of each region the network spans and draws on this to maintain Action’s core ethos of flexibility, accountability and quality. During his 15 years at Action, Chris has gained invaluable insight into cross-cultural and multi-faceted strategic communications.
In addition to spearheading top-level consultancy campaigns for top-level multi-national clients, including the EC, OMV and Etihad, he has been responsible continuing the development of Action’s award-winning Middle East regional network. In 2015, he launched Action Digital – the Group’s dedicated agency offering integrated digital solutions across the group’s 40-plus countries. Stakis, as he is affectionately known around the network, began his career in international advertising sales for the Wall Street Journal in London where he learned fundamental lessons in teamwork, leadership and strategic business development that would prove vital in further growing the family business.
