Taurus is a privately owned, integrated strategic marketing and PR agency servicing smart entrepreneurs globally from our Sydney HQ for over 20 years. Our home base and sweet spot is B2B tech companies after our founding client KAZ, but as our long term clients and captain of industry have branched into other sectors, so have we! Our TaurusBullseye™ methodology, created from years of international experience has taken brands to the top since we proudly worked with our founding client, Peter Kazacos of the KAZ Group. KAZ sold for $350 million in 2001 from our start in 1995.
Taurus began in 1995 when founder Sharon Williams was personally chosen by Tech Entrepreneur Peter Kazacos, former CEO of The KAZ Group to help build the KAZ brand into the largest IT services company in Australia. Peter sought and selected Sharon personally from her international reputation with Global Tech Start up and IBM Business Partner Synon Inc. Working together with Peter and the Directors directly, through acquisitions, KAZ became the most successful IT IPO float of the year in 2003 when the company sold for $340m.
