Bumper crop of out-of-town work means growth for Wyatt Brand

Austin Business Journal

David Wyatt and his creative and public relations agency Wyatt Brand are on a hot streak. The company, which has 10 employees and reported $430,000 in revenue in 2013, brought in eight new clients over the past 30 days, including four outside of Austin


The new accounts are: Williamson-Burnet Counties Opportunities Inc., San Luis Spirits, Gallery at Vaudeville art space, architectural lighting firm Craig Roberts Associates, the Movability Austin campaign, fundraising firm Corcoran & Co., author Marcia L. Williams and musicians the Flying Balalaika Brothers


Wyatt, who co-owns the agency with his wife, Rachel, said the wider reach of Wyatt Brand shows that it can handle larger accounts by handling events and activations that are needed to improve engagement with consumers


The new accounts came as some business was ending for the company, so Wyatt doesn’t anticipate having to make any full time hires to meet the demands. Its revenue grew by 43 percent from 2012 to 2013 and Wyatt expects more growth this year but didn’t have a solid forecast


Acquiring so many new accounts meant lots of conversations and proposals. He said at one point in recent months the company was under consideration for 22 accounts
