EDMONTON, AB (January 5, 2017): Starburst Creative, an Edmonton-based marketing and advertising agency, has opened its Toronto office, marking the first new market expansion for the eight-year-old agency.

“Last year was an incredible year of growth for Starburst and we’re excited to begin 2017 by expanding into the country’s largest and most competitive market,” said Rob Jennings, President and Creative Director at Starburst. “We’re looking forward to another great year and our expansion into Toronto represents even more potential for new and exciting things.”

Account Supervisor Chelsea Rho will initially staff the Toronto office. Originally from the Toronto area, she’s been at Starburst since 2012 and is intimately familiar with the agency’s client base and service offerings. Future recruitment will focus on further building out the Toronto office’s capacity.

“Starburst already works with a number of national brands that have significant operations in eastern Canada,” Jennings said. “Not only is this expansion an opportunity to build our client base, but it will allow us to serve our existing clients even better.”

The new office is located at Suite 400, 901 King Street West.
