Indie powerhouse, Hemisphere, has welcomed Alexandra Leckie to its Wellington office as Kaitohutohu Ratonga Kiritaki Client Service Specialist.
With roots in the scenic Wairarapa and a thriving 14-year history in Wellington, Leckie brings a fresh perspective to the ambidextrous thinkers at Hemisphere.
Leckie’s passion for the natural world led her to roles at Wellington Zoo and Zealandia, before jumping into the world of marketing.
Hemisphere’s Kairataki, Dr Tim Antric, described Alexandra as a great fit for Hemisphere: “Alexandra’s passion for marketing, for Aotearoa, and her fit with our values makes her the perfect kaimahi for Hemisphere. Her previous roles with Assignment Group and Strategy Creative, and then collaborating with so many talented creatives as a freelance, mean she’s fit right in!”
Leckie says she was drawn to Hemisphere by the agency’s deep-rooted social values and renowned behaviour-changing campaigns.
“I think this industry has a reputation of being a bit shallow, just clever ways to sell stuff. It’s so much more than that. Through engagement, research, and thoughtful design we can solve problems, inspire, and create real change within our communities. It’s exciting”.
She brings with her a passion for human connection and building relationships. “I’m really looking forward to working with and learning from some compelling and talented people, clients and colleagues alike. I look forward to contributing to Hemisphere’s growing success”.
Leckie joined Hemisphere on Monday, October 2nd.
