We're thrilled to announce the appointment of Ian Howard into the newly created position of Managing Director. Ian joined us as Chief Strategy Officer in October 2016 and will retain his CSO responsibilities alongside his new role as Managing Director.
Our CEO and founder Mark Hurley says Ian 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.”
Juggling the demands of an MD and CSO position, Ian’s keeping himself pretty busy right now but he took a second to express his excitement about the new role:
"I’m extremely proud of what we've achieved over the last couple of years; joining the world’s leading 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."
“One of the things that initially attracted me to Little Giant was the refusal to be constrained by industry norms. We’ve always thought a little bit differently, and I think that’s been the secret to our success. That’s something I want to carry across to the Managing Director role. Much as we do for our clients’ businesses, I’ll be aiming to strike a balance between creativity and empathy to find new ways of propelling Little Giant forward."
“We’ve got a hugely talented team here, amazing clients and a culture that’s truly special. I couldn’t be more excited about working alongside Mark and the rest of the team here towards our goal of being the leading agency in New Zealand.”
Before joining Little Giant, Ian held high profile strategic positions in both the UK and New Zealand, including at ITV, TVNZ and Interbrand and he is a regular contributor to TVNZ Breakfast as a digital commentator.
