Radford, who set up Radford Wallis in 1999 with Andrew Wallis, is set to join WPP group The Partners in January.
A spokeswoman for The Partners says Radford’s appointment is part of ‘ongoing growth and expansion at the London office’. Jack Renwick, former creative director at the consultancy’s London office, left earlier this year to set up on her own.
Radford says, ‘The Partners’ reputation and the level of work that the brand consultancy attracts has been a real draw for me. I’m really looking forward to starting work with the team and getting my teeth into some big brand projects.’
Nick Eagleton, creative director UK at The Partners, says, ‘[Stuart’s] wealth of experience and creative credentials make him a perfect fit for The Partners, as well as his exceptionally high standards.’
Radford Wallis has brought in Robert Tatarczuk as business development manager and promoted senior designer Graham Birch to creative director.
