Sander van Maarschalkerweerd

Sizzer

When Sander van Maarschalkerweerd (1974) founded Sizzer in 2005, he wanted to bridge the gap between explosive music talent and the finest in the ad industry. It’s safe to say he succeeded – under his leadership, Sizzer developed from its Amsterdam roots to an all-round music partner for international agencies and brands.

Working together with brands and agencies to create music and sound concepts for moving images, Sizzer is the go-to partner for the most creative and ground-breaking musical stories being told. Sizzer works with people that make them happy, that dare to embrace the unknown and thrive on a bit of chaos where creativity flourishes. Sometimes these people work for brands like Heineken, Diesel or Audi. Creative agencies such as BBH, Publicis, DDB, Fred & Farid, Heimat and Wieden+Kennedy trust Sizzer’s offices in Amsterdam and Berlin to connect the best in music and culture with the brightest moving images.

Sander has been a leading voice in the industry with multiple jury memberships under his belt, including Cannes Lions, Art Directors Club Germany and London International Awards. He is also a founding partner of Buma Music in Motion, an annual conference dedicated to the innovative use of music in media, bringing together the premier minds and talents in the creative industries.
