Stuart Avery Chairman & Co-founder
I co-founded the agency in 1997, starting as joint MD then becoming sole MD in 2008. In my time at Great State I have overseen it’s growth from a startup, to a highly profitable 70 strong, strategic agency with multiple offices working with major brands including the Royal Navy, Orange, The National Trust, BP and Clarks to name only a few. Alongside running Great State day to day I have seen the business through two rounds of major change. The first in 2000 was to introduce new finance from angel investors, then negotiating and project managing an MBO in 2009 to buy out those investors. After appointing a new MD in 2012 to run the agency I now perform the role of non-exec Chairman on a part time basis.
