A new face is set to join the iProspect APAC team, with Marcus Hawkins-Adams coming in as general manger of the New Zealand office. Hawkins-Adams, currently Managing Director of Isobar Australia, has 20 years of experience in the digital arena, working on major brands both locally and globally.
Before moving to Australia to head up Isobar, Marcus lived in New Zealand for nine years and was managing director of multi-media agency, Brave New World.
Prior to this he was head of interactive media development for international publisher Dorling Kindersley (the largest of its kind in the UK), and head of interactive at online agency Clever Media.
“I am really looking forward to taking up the role at iProspect … with the backing of world class proprietary tools, coupled with being part of the world’s largest search company, I know we have a lot to bring to the market,” says Hawkins-Adams.
Chief executive of iProspect Peter Hunter says:
“Marcus has done a superb job for Isobar in Australia, adding new clients, pulling together an experienced and cohesive team and successfully giving emphasis to our digital credentials. His years of experience in digital will ensure we continue to deliver the best for our iProspect clients in New Zealand.”
