Paul Brady, Founder

As a veteran public relations and marketing communications professional, Paul dedicates himself to raising the bar on standards for how companies communicate with the world.

With more than 15 years of experience in ushering new companies and products to market, he’s helped established players redefine their space and ushered startups in their mission to break ground in new arenas.

He launched the world’s most popular game Candy Crush Saga and shepherded its maker King to its record breaking $7 billion IPO. He also helped Pinterest break into new categories like travel, men’s interest and more, while overseeing the efforts that introduced USA Network into the digital entertainment and games arenas.

Paul ensures Carve is in a league above and beyond its global competition, while helping its clients grow and enable entire industries to bloom. Although he was raised in Austin, Texas, it was the city’s large games, VR and tech industries, as well as the many high-profile thought leaders and events like SXSW inspired him to base the agency here. He sees his team as family and treats them like entrepreneurs instead of staff and only brings clients on board the team will have a strong connection with.

Paul has lived in New York, Los Angeles and Denver and has traveled to more than 30 countries, but his heart is in Austin. He loves the energy, creativity and soul of the city as it offers one of the richest cultures he’s seen.
