Former Colenso BBDO CCO Levi Slavin joins Howatson+Company as new CCO


Australia – Advertising agency Howatson+Company has just announced the appointment of Levi Slavin, former chief creative officer of creative firm Colenso BBDO, to be its new chief creative officer.

Slavin’s creative reputation has been built over a 21-year career, working in Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States. His work has been featured at TED, ranked #1 on both the iTunes music and podcast charts, and become part of popular culture through song, product innovation, and branded series, as well as film.

The appointment of Slavin will commence officially in January 2022.

Commenting on his new role, Slavin said that he is beyond thrilled to finally have the opportunity to work with Howatson. 

“It’s the only model I’ve come across that will keep up with culture, the needs of brands, and return some humanity to our industry. I can’t wait to return home to Australia and get started,” noted Slavin.

Meanwhile, Chris Howatson, the CEO and founder of Howatson+Company, commented that Slavin is renowned for his empathy, his commitment to developing his teams, and his building deep relationships with his clients. 

“I’ve known Levi for many years – both of us having long tenures at Clemenger Group – and the opportunity to partner with him in building H+Co is a career highlight,” said Howatson.

Just recently, Howatson has announced the rebranding of the company, from Howatson+White to Howatson+Company, following his partner Ant White’s sudden exit.
