Brisbane web agency merger – MyWork acquires Start Creative

Today we’re proud to be able to share some extremely exciting news in the world of MyWork.

MyWork has recently acquired another Brisbane-based full service digital agency, Start Creative, in a move that will see the clients of both entities as the major beneficiaries.

The old adage that ‘the whole is greater than the sum of its parts’ is as relevant as ever. Now with the combined expertise and resources of both MyWork and Start Creative, we’re able to provide an even more comprehensive network of integrated services to better fulfil our customers’ online needs.

"It’s a super exciting time at MyWork as we welcome Start Creative and their clients into the fold. We’re all really excited to be able to merge the best elements and learnings of both agencies and expand on the services and solutions we can now offer to our combined customers." 

Joining the MyWork team is Start Creative Founder, George Lam, in his new role as MyWork Design Lead. George brings to MyWork his considerable wealth of experience in digital design, marketing strategy, web app development and video production. Since founding Start Creative in 2014, George and his team have worked closely with businesses of all sizes including notable brands like AFL NSW/ACT, Supercheap Auto, Burrito Bar and Aria Living. Now as part of the MyWork team, George is looking forward to introducing new services to MyWork customers, like bespoke online tool development and videography services.

"I'm so excited to introduce Start's customers to the amazing MyWork team and equally can't wait to work with all of MyWork's great customers."

With many well documented examples of merges and aquisitions going horribly wrong because of cultural incompatibility, we’ve begun this next stage in the evolution of MyWork with a laser focus on ensuring continuity and certainty for all customers. 

"From my very first conversation with George, it was amazing to see the similarities between our two businesses and just how closely aligned we were in our approach to building a customer focused agency. It didn’t take long for discussions to progress to how we could achieve much more, together."

At MyWork, we’ve always understood the importance of building a foundation of trust and transparency with our customers. Our aim is for customers to feel as though MyWork is just an organic extension of their own team. Because of this driving principle, ensuring a strong cultural and customer fit has been the key consideration for any acquisition opportunity.

"From big change, comes great outcomes. This is a bold step for both companies, and with each passing day, it becomes more and more evident this was a perfect pairing. From our approach to the web industry, to customer service and business philosophies, so much is in sync and I'm extremely excited to see where this ride takes us.” 

The future is looking bright, and over the coming weeks and months we’re looking forward to welcoming Start Creative and their customers to MyWork. From the whole team here at MyWork, we can’t wait to share some of the new and exciting plans for improved services and offerings to help your businesses grow as we do.
