Chris Little (far left in photo) joins Host after eight years at M&C Saatchi where he was creative director, responsible for some of the agency’s most awarded digital campaigns for clients including Lexus and Google. After two years at Host, Jon Austin (second from right) has been promoted to creative director. He’s joined by Kirsty Gavin (formally head of art at Droga5 Sydney) rounding out the line-up.

The creative team will head up a growing pool of diverse creative talent, including recent hires Josie Burns, Matt Ennis and Daniel Barrett.

Current Host clients include global icons such as Pizza Hut and Air New Zealand as well as forward thinking Australian organisations including Bankwest and Pacific Brands. Host has a team of 100 people and works alongside other complementary businesses including PR agency One Green Bean, Crowd Atlas and BRING.

In July 2011, Host formed a partnership with Havas through which 51 per cent of the agency was acquired by the Paris-based group. In January 2013, Host announced their first international hub office in Singapore, with founding clients The Coca-Cola Company and Tourism WA.
