Kristofer Taylor

Group Account Director

Kristofer Taylor

Kristofer’s career started by sitting opposite two influential people... and only two. Strange as it seems, it meant working under the guidance and tutelage of his former Managing Partner and Creative Partner for the first few years and being exposed to all facets of the business, industry and a mountain of knowledge. This is where his passion for building brands, collaborating, producing creative solutions and creating business success first ignited and he hasn’t looked back. With over 10 years experience in the communications industry, Kristofer has crafted his strategic, creative and management expertise across a wide range of verticals including Alcohol, FMCG, Technology, Banking, Tourism and Automotive. His belief that none of us are as good as all of us hasn’t changed from the first day he started.

Who would play you in a film and why? Old blue eyes… the man could sing, swing and act, and leader of the rat pack. Frank Sinatra, what a legend.

 If you were planning a music festival, who – dead or alive – would be your headliner? Without doubt 'The king of pop’. I saw him live in 2006 in Melbourne and I’ll never forget the moment he did the moonwalk across the stage. The crowd had been waiting and anticipating the moment, and when it slid across the crowd exploded and I’ve never felt so much energy and excitement in one stadium. No single artist could entertain
like MJ.

You're given an airplane ticket to anywhere in the world – where do you choose to go (and why)? Top of Mt Everest. Impossible as it may be, you did say anywhere in the world. Bucket list tick done.
 
 What's your favourite memory? Childhood memories at the best, and it’s hard to distinguish one. Playing with my old dog Odie the ‘wonderdog', backyard cricket with my brother, winning a football premiership with mates, going on family holidays and listening to the same Travelling Wilburys tape from my dad over and over and over again… yeah they were the best. 
 
Who is your inspiration? The closest and smartest people around me. My wife, my mum and dad, brother and sister, close friends and colleagues. They all drive ambition and inspiration and we can learn a lot from them.
 
You're on a desert island – what album have you brought with you? Photo or music album? I'll give both. Music - Jeff Buckley (Grace) - an epic melody. Do I have portable sound system? Photo - early childhood memories of the family - they always make you feel good when you've got nothing but coconuts.
 
What would be your death-row dinner? Nasi Lemak. I'd have to be on death row in Malaysia though...and it would be worth it.
