About Us

We are PromoVeritas. And we Run it Right.

PromoVeritas was founded in 2002 by our CEO Jeremy Stern, the ex-European Promotions Director of Coca-Cola. He identified a clear gap between creative agencies working on brilliant ideas and clients who wanted to keep on the right side of the law and protect their budgets and reputations.

Since then we have administered thousands of promotions and given away over £50 million of prizes for some of the world’s biggest brands.
