New Office and Director for Faster Horses

March 25 2019 Australian insights consultancy Faster Horses has opened an office in Canberra, adding to existing locations in Perth and Sydney; and has appointed James Wunsch to lead it as Director of Social & Government research.

Faster Horses was launched in 2014 by former Ipsos execs Peter Fairbrother and Veronica Mayne, and consults in what Perth-based MD Mayne describes as ‘unobtrusive, friendly and respectful ways’, focusing on ‘short, succinct surveys that protect the integrity of the data, as well as respects the time and efforts of respondents’. 

Wunsch joins from Colmar Brunton where he spent ten years, most recently as General Manager of the Canberra office. Earlier he worked at agencies Jigsaw and Eureka, as well as client side at the Australian Taxation Office. His experience covers policy formation and service, program and communication outcomes. Sydney MD Fairbrother comments: ‘We are very excited to have James Wunsch on board as he brings 20 years of experience in government consulting to the business. His insights and maturity in this space are unsurpassed’. 

In addition to this geographical expansion and added sector expertise, the company is developing a gamification partnership with customer experience group Komo; vice technology plans with TrueReply; and an initiative bringing together a number of marcomms data sources for improved marketing performance analytics.
