JPA was founded in March 1982 by Joe Pace and John Formosa. In 1994 Alfred J. Bianco joined the group as shareholder and Director inculcating the core brand philosophy of the agency of adaptability and versatility all the while maintaining the highest respect for the dignity of staff, clients, suppliers, media operatives and ultimately the end consumer.
Since its inception JPA has positioned itself at the forefront of advertising. Having quickly established itself as one of the leading agencies on the Maltese Islands JPA has gained a reputation of being an astute and innovative agency geared to deliver creative results. Over the years JPA has continued to improve as well as enhance its product by extending into new areas related to the printing industry. 1999 is in fact characterized by an investment in a printing press enabling the Agency to offer a more holistic service to its clients.
The year 2000 saw a change in management with Chris Bianco, having acquired half the shareholding, being appointed managing director while John Formosa became the chairman of the company. Since then the Agency has continued to grow and thrive. Change and product innovation have always been embraced leading to the setting up of an audio-visual company to further enhance the service. In fact JPA, together with Chris Pace, inaugurated Blaze Productions Ltd which is today JPA’s audio-visual arm.
Today the Agency employees 36 full time employees and services a portfolio of over a 100 clients.
