Australian independent agency The Hallway has announced two senior additions to the team, following recent business wins and growth.
Marketer Erin Kelly (right) has joined as client partner, working across accounts including Google, while Libby Hams (left) has taken on the newly created head of project management role, spearheading an integrated team of producers and project managers.
Says Jules Hall, CEO at The Hallway: “These are extraordinary times and we recognise just how tough many Australians are doing it at the moment. We’ve been fortunate to switch to a fully remote working model to continue supporting the needs of our clients as they evolve during this crisis. Having Erin and Libby on board, with their experience and respective skill sets, is helping to make this work more effectively and I welcome them to the team.”
Both report into The Hallway’s managing partner, Hannah Sturrock.
Kelly brings over 15 years’ experience across start-ups and agency and was most recently the marketing lead for sustainability start-up Containers for Change, backed by Lion and Coca Cola Amatil. Prior to this she worked at agencies including TBWA and Host.
Taking on the head of project management role is a natural fit for Hams, having led agency operations and production for Saatchi & Saatchi, Ogilvy, Leo Burnett, M&C Saatchi, DDB and also BMF – where she worked alongside Sturrock. Successfully blurring the lines of integrated production and project direction, she’s worked on some of the country’s biggest clients including Westpac, VW, McDonald’s, Telstra, Optus, Toyota, David Jones, Aldi, Lion Nathan and Foxtel.
