A little bit about us...

Pete and Del, our co-founders, kicked off the Austin Fraser journey back in 2007. They started in a garage with just the two of them but they were armed with one big vision. Over the years, not only has our office and team grown but so has our vision. After hitting each milestone, we're continually focussed on the next challenge. This hunger for success is a quality we look for in every new hire. We don't plan on slowing down anytime soon, so if you're hungry for success, why not come and join us.

All smiles from our Austin team!

Where do we call home?

We began our journey in Reading, UK, which will always be home to our HQ. In June 2017 we moved into a state of the art office at Thames Tower, opposite Reading Train Station. We be took over the 11th floor that offers impressive 360 panoramic views of the Thames Valley. This new office is taking AF to the next level, giving each one of our brands their own space to really establish themselves and grow. We are a global business and have offices in both Munich and Berlin in Germany and in Austin, Texas. Take a look at the pages for each office to find out more...

We're family

We're a sociable bunch, we take every opportunity to get together outside of work whether it's big moments such as our unforgettable Christmas event, birthday parties or once in a lifetime incentive trips such as The Bahamas, Vegas, Rejkjavik, Barbados and many more! We also have regular celebrations throughout the year such as family days, quiz nights, monthly lunch clubs, our infamous annual rounders match and many more. #LifeatAF
