Hardhat Digital has appointed industry heavy hitter Tim Beveridge to the newly created role of
Beveridge joins with over 15 years of digital experience, most recently at Responsys/Oracle as Director of Strategic Services for the APAC region.
A Digital industry pioneer, Beveridge’s led the digital charge for many of Australia’s leading agencies including Clemenger BBDO, The White Agency and Tribal DDB.
Hardhat managing director Justin Kabbani is suitably rapt, saying: “There are less than a handful of
guys in the country with the experience, intellect and vision that Tim’s got. Bringing him on board is
a huge coup for the agency and will massively benefit our clients and team.”
Beveridge saw the opportunity as a perfect next step, stating: “The relationships between clients and agencies, and the way agencies deliver value back to clients is undergoing massive shifts. It means
that agencies can’t continue to work the way they have before. They need to innovate or die. Hardhat is in a perfect position to move quickly to find the new agency model and develop new and better ways of working with their client partners. It’s a pleasure to be on board for that journey.”
Beveridge is the latest in a series of recent senior appointments for the agency, including former Adcorp account director Leah Pooley and operations manager Ruth Lynskey.
The agency is now 25 strong with clients including Deakin University, Melbourne Airport, Leggo’s, Birds Eye and NAB.
