Chuck Carlberg

Principal/Brand Creative

Chuck founded his agency with three other young turks and a media director who doubled as the agency receptionist. Those small beginnings led to Houston’s premier creative advertising agency and to the natural evolution of a creative brand called Richards/Carlberg.

It’s the “doing” of advertising that Chuck loves most – everything from taste-testing Blue Bell to test-driving a Mahindra. Chuck’s work has been recognized by every major advertising competition from Houston to New York. He was named to Adweek’s Creative All-Stars and “Best Creative Director of the Southwest.” And in 2012, he was inducted into the Southwest Advertising Hall of Fame. 

Chuck married his wife and business partner, Gayl, on April Fool’s Day, 1978, and loves working and living with her every day. When he’s not working (which he loves), Chuck is a very active outdoors kind of guy, now training for his twelfth MS 150 Bike Ride from Houston to Austin.
