Company history

In 1976 Robinson Lambie-Nairn was established by Colin Robinson and Martin Lambie-Nairn, in January 1993 it was renamed Lambie-Nairn & Company.[2] In 1992, Glenn Tutssel and Martin Lambie-Nairn conceived Brand Union as a cross-platform entity that could allow areas of design beyond their branding and broadcast heritage to work together.[3] Brand Union was the ultimate holding company for Lambie-Nairn & Company and in October 1999 Brand Union was acquired by WPP.[4] Throughout this period the Company's trading name was Lambie-Nairn.

Martin Lambie-Nairn left the company in April 2008.[5]
