Stu Turner Leaves The Royals, Joins Edge As Executive Creative Director & Partner

Award-winning Executive Creative Director (ECD) Stu Turner has left The Royals to join Edge as its new ECD and partner.

Turner had previously served as The Royals’ ECD across its Melbourne and Sydney offices before joining the independent agency. He has previously held ECD roles with DDB and Havas.

Across his career, Turner has picked up more than 100 local and international awards including multiple Grand Prix at Cannes and Spikes.

“From the moment I first met the team at Edge, I was excited about not only their vision, but stack of in-house capabilities they have in place to achieve it,” commented Turner.

“With all the much-needed integrated skills sitting under one roof, as well as real world examples of that model in action, it really is the type of agency set up I believe you need to create work and brands that are relentlessly relevant in culture. It’s going to be a wild and fun ride, and I’m looking forward to all of us at Edge making the best work of our careers.”

Edge’s list of clients includes Bupa, Allianz, Moccona, Charles Darwin University, Costco, Steadfast, Hearing Australia, Taylors Wines, Wattyl, Starlight Children’s Foundation and NSW Government departments.

“We’ve known Stu for a while and always admired what he does. His work is highly awarded for good reason, and he is the perfectly credentialled creative person to lead our integrated capabilities. We were looking for a person who recognises the unique creative opportunity offered by the breadth and depth of our creative, content, data and media capabilities. He’s the perfect complement to our structure and skill set. We’re so chuffed that he’s joining the business,” said David Stretch, Edge’s managing director.

“Stu’s a natural leader and an all-round good person, with a knack for nurturing creative talent and collaborating with clients to produce great work that delivers results” Stretch added.
