We’re happy to announce the recent addition of eight new talented employees to support continued growth across our corporate, IT and consumer technology teams.
Le Tran, senior account manager who joined Howorth late last year, took a whirlwind six week trip to Vietnam to do volunteer work at an orphanage. She rejoins the corporate/B2B team, bringing her experience of creating and executing award-winning thought leadership campaigns. Meanwhile, Simon Gomes joined Howorth as an account manager, and works on Microsoft and PGi. From the UK, he has worked with a range of technology brands, including VeriSign, NetApp, Epson, Quantum and Buffalo Technology, boasting a wealth of experience dealing with technology and specialist media. He holds a Bachelor of Economic and Social Studies with Honours in Politics from Cardiff University.
Duncan Smith and Adam Clatworthy, both senior consultants, also arrived fresh from the UK. B2B PR specialist Duncan began his career at UK agency Bell Pottinger, where he focused on national and international corporate and digital campaigns for brands that included Nikon, Roche, Kimberly Clark and Johnson & Johnson. Meanwhile, Adam brings significant experience in IT and telecommunications to Howorth, having executed PR programs for D-Link, Nuance Communications, Trend Micro, VASCO and Claro Software during a four year stint at UK agency NSPR.
UTS alumni Dorea Lau and Erin Copping – both with track records in technology, business and not-for-profit sectors – have also stepped into the fold. Dorea and Erin can count client experience including Hewlett-Packard, Accenture, Motorola, Microsoft, Citrix, Toshiba and the Jane McGrath Foundation. This is Erin’s second spell with Howorth.
Recently graduated from Charles Sturt University, Anna Barnes has become a full-time account coordinator, having previously completed an internship last year. Anna currently provides support across all aspects of the Microsoft account. Meanwhile, Sophie Jones has joined the Howorth family as our office coordinator. Sophie comes from an event management background, and has the challenge of keeping the Howorth team on its toes and the office running smoothly.
Last but not least, Amanda Do and Tara Mills will also be joining us next week to fill two much needed account coordinator roles. Both have displayed fantastic initiative whilst completing internships at Howorth earlier in the year, and we look forward to their coming on board.
