Following a hugely successful first half of the year, communications agency History Will Be Kind (HWBK) is continuing to enhance its offering and rapidly growing team with two stellar new hires.
Working across PR, social and content production in an integrated capacity, Niall Hughes joins as a senior account manager and Alistair Shields as a social media manager.
The duo have combined experience across Australia and the UK, and bring a wealth of expertise and skills to the table. They will be responsible for supporting clients within the agency’s ever-expanding client roster, including new partners Polycom and Oneflare.
Prior to joining HWBK, Hughes worked across the public relations spectrum at S2i Communications, while Shields led social media strategy and implementation for integrated clients at Reborn.
Emma-Jane (EJ) Granleese, managing partner of HWBK, said she is delighted with the agency’s accelerated growth, with the team now in double figures in only two years since launching.
“We pride ourselves on the creation, planning and execution of high impact, content driven communications programmes with a channel agnostic approach,” she said.
“The continued growth of our team and high calibre clients is a clear testament to the value of our unique offering. Niall and Alistair make a fantastic addition to the team and I’m looking forward to making History with them.”
HWBK works with a wide range of B2C and B2B clients including International Convention Centre Sydney, Menora Foods, Merlin Entertainments Group, World2Cover and Cheapflights.
