Andrew Hawley to step down from Clemenger BBDO Wellington

Clemenger BBDO Wellington announced today that Andrew Hawley will step down as managing partner effective 1 June.  

Hawley began his career with Clemenger BBDO Wellington almost two decades ago before leaving the agency in the early 2000s, along with the Touchcast brand, and built a client base in both Wellington and Auckland.

During his time leading the Touchcast team, he helped spearhead much of Spark’s digital brand transition from Telecom as well as numerous campaigns and digital projects for Foodstuffs, Education New Zealand and Immigration New Zealand.

Most recently, Hawley helped merge Touchcast into the Auckland and Wellington BBDO offices and is now looking to the future for fresh opportunities.

Hawley says Brett Hoskin has Clemenger BBDO Wellington well settled after the merger last year, so now is a good time for him to explore new challenges and return to what he loves most – creating start-ups.

Hawley will continue in his role on a part-time basis while he transitions to his creative origins working on a number of early-phase companies and projects. He will also provide independent creative consultant services.

He adds: “The team here are supportive of this decision and I think we all view it as more of a new phase in our relationship rather than an end.”

Jim Moser, CEO Clemenger Group NZ, says, he's known Hawley for close to a decade.

"Andrew built an enviable business in Touchcast well before we took a financial interest. I have enjoyed working with him over the years and have many fond memories of pitching and winning loads of new business. I’m sure our paths will continue to cross.”
