Ian Howard steps into managing director role of Little Giant

Little Giant has appointed Ian Howard to the newly created position of managing director.

Howard joined Little Giant as chief strategy officer in October 2016 and will retain those responsibilities alongside his new role as managing director.

His previous experience includes high profile strategic positions in both the United Kingdom and New Zealand, including at ITV, TVNZ and Interbrand, and he is a regular contributor to TVNZ's Breakfast as a digital commentator.

Mark Hurley, founder and chief executive of Little Giant, says Howard has been an integral part of Little Giant's success over the last two years, and it was a natural choice to promote him into this role.

“Ian has done an outstanding job, building out our strategy department, helping us refine Little Giant’s vision as a company and driving excellence across all client engagements. As we continue to scale, it's become clear we need additional leadership support, and Ian has proven across the last two years that he is the right man for the job. I am extremely excited to appoint Ian to this new role and look forward to working side by side with him to help this agency realise its enormous potential.”

Howard says he is extremely proud of what Little Giant has achieved over the last couple of years; "joining digital agency network - Isobar; being awarded Campaign Asia Pacific’s New Zealand Digital Agency of the Year; and developing into a truly rounded digital agency with industry-leading strategic and creative ability alongside world-class production capabilities”.​
