For over 12 years Stuart pioneered and developed one of the most successful design and brand businesses in the country: Moon Communications. He then spent three years heading up the Ogilvy & Mather business during a critical stage of its growth.
During this time, Stuart continued to play a crucial ‘hands on’ role in the development of many of Australia’s major brands and critical projects. Houston is a response to the demand for this level of involvement from Stuart. A business built from the ground up to manage – at a very senior level – high-end brand and communications strategy and execution.
Houston is not just a consultancy. It is a business directly connected to the resources and facilities of STW, allowing it to scale and deliver some of the biggest projects in the country, whilst retaining the feeling of a small, nimble team.
Even before its creation, the core Houston team had been engaged by a range of the largest corporations in Australia including the Qantas Group, Lend Lease, Westfield, the Westpac Group, Commonwealth Bank, Tourism NSW, Telstra and Hutchison.
Houston is a new business with the track record and success of one of the most experienced brand guys in the country, supported and endorsed by the largest marketing and communications business: STW Group.
