Real from day one

Back

Alex and Roger, having known each other for some ten years, and acknowledging their respective roles within the advertising industry, hit upon the idea of forging a partnership and starting their own agency.


Roger knew a thing or two about trucks and had a passion for customer relationship marketing, having run his own agency for some twenty years. Alex had a world-travelled bag of brand experience from a host of multi-national agencies and was keen to forge a more direct and collaborative relationship with clients.

In 2005, they made the vision real. Fenton Stephens opened its doors in a small South Melbourne cottage with two foundation clients: a truck brand and a boxing-inspired sports apparel brand.

Fenton Stephens had two very real clients, a clear agenda for what we had to offer the market and a real determination to make it work.

Only after forming the business, did Roger and Alex come to realise that they were both the sons of bakers, with a shared resolve to get up early, roll up the sleeves and get done whatever needed to be done.

Fenton Stephens, from day one, was always going to be real.
