Former JWT Planning Director Iain 'Chalky' White joins the team

We're delighted to announce that Iain White has recently joined Hardhat in the newly created role of Planning Director.

Iain brings over 30 years of planning experience in executive-level roles, including more than two decades across J. Walter Thompson’s APAC offices in Melbourne, Tokyo and Bangkok. Iain will add significant strategic firepower to the agency and help accelerate the strong growth the business has seen over the last 24 months.

On joining the team, Iain said: “I’m thrilled to join Hardhat and it’s rare to meet such a nice bunch of smart people. I’m doubly excited by the agency’s growth, not just in new accounts, but with the big movement happening with existing clients asking the agency to extend their skills into more traditional channels such as TV, radio, print and outdoor. It’s a good sign of strong relationships and that the work is working.”

Hardhat Co-Founder and Managing Director Justin Kabbani, added: “As Planning Director, Iain will play a critical role in helping us execute our strategy to become a leading creative agency built for the digital age. His extensive global experience is a big asset as we continue our expansion not just in Melbourne and Sydney, but also into Asia.”

Iain will join the growing strategy team where his experience will be invaluable.
