Hogg said: “It’s great to be joining the Emotive family. Simon’s filled the place with talented people who all share my enthusiasm for ideas.
“They’ve been making adventurous, effective communication for an enviable bunch of creatively ambitious clients. And they’re on the beach at Tama, which doesn’t hurt. I look forward to helping our clients strengthen and grow their brands, and to building on the incredible momentum the agency has.”

“Just as importantly, he’s a great guy and his leadership will add significantly to the development of our creative culture – which is the single most important factor for our continued success.”
