Julian Aston is a marketing industry thought-leader with more than 40 years of experience in top-level marketing and business development positions in the U.K., Canada and the U.S. He is highly regarded for his outside-the-box, imaginative thinking, and for the experience, passion and insight he brings to all business relationships. Today, he heads intouch Business, Inc.
Julian began his career in the advertising business with the London-based Austin Knight Agency. He then developed both his graphic and entrepreneurial skills as an owner of a small printing shop when letterpress machines were still in vogue (his favorite love remains the Heidelberg 10X15 windmill platen).
In search of greener pastures, he moved to Toronto, Canada in 1974, beginning a sixteen-year stint in one of the most exciting cities in North America. Applying his graphic arts and business development skills, he built what became the third largest marketing agency of its type in the Canadian market, with offices in Toronto and Chicago, serving Fortune 500’s including Bank of America, Pepsi-Cola, Kellogg’s, American Express and many more impressive names.
Moving to Los Angeles in 1990, he focused on delivering business and marketing consulting to small to mid-market sized companies in broad-based industries, notably providing planning and fundraising services to internet start-ups while leading the double digits consultancy.
In 2006, he formed intouch Business to deliver a combination of strategic business and marketing services to North American businesses, with the insurance industry as a particular focus.
Julian and the intouch team combine their deep experience in the fields of business, marketing, creative and IT. In addition, intouch has established business partnerships with other industry leading companies in order to bring guidance, advice and a rich set of insights and best practices to clients facing complex situations in today’s dynamic business climate.
No matter their size, intouch clients are provided a unique service combination that makes real, the promise of measurable results through the use of marketing tactics appropriate to corporate objectives.
A graduate of London’s Christ’s College, Julian has held the position of Vice President of the Council of Sales Promotion Agencies, written numerous articles for major trade magazines including Promo, Marketing, Insurance Journal and more, and has been featured as a presenter at industry conferences. He takes an active role in his clients’ enterprises and is currently on the advisory board of three private companies.
Julian lives in Glendale, California and is happily married with a family of four children and four grand-children. His personal interests include inspiring young people in business with his involvement in the Junior Achievement organization, and in support of the American Cancer Society.
