Crosby/Textor are a Canberra, Australia based market research and communications company closely aligned with the conservative Liberal Party of Australia. The company was created in 2003 by former Australian Liberal Party federal director Lynton Crosby and former Liberal Party pollster Mark Textor.
Their website states that the company offers "high-level strategic advice, based on opinion research, to clients who need to run campaigns targeted at various stakeholders – such as customers, voters or politicians". 
Crosby/Textor operates in both Australia and the UK, and has formed a partnership to advise Wirthlin Worldwide clients in the Australasian region.
Following their successful campaign to get conservative Australian Prime Minister John Howard re-elected in October 2004, Lynton Crosby was appointed to head the British Conservative Party's election campaign while Mark Textor advised the British Conservative Party leader, Michael Howard, in the run up to the May 2005 general election.
