“Stuart and I go way back, first working together at Teague’s New York office back in the early 1990s. I’m thrilled to roll up our sleeves together again. Stuart’s talents and extensive experience will be a great addition to the team as we continue our mission to be the world’s leading resource for packaging innovation,” says Peter Clarke, CEO & Founder of Product Ventures.
Stuart will lead the Industrial Design department. Stuart brings an eye for breakthrough innovations, an acumen for maximizing client profitability through design, and a consumer-focused approach toward sustainability improvements in packaging.

I think our teams have helped push each other to new levels of capabilities and elevated the level of service to our clients because of this drive between us. We had always said, ‘One day we will do this on the same team,’ and finally it has come true.”
