Marketforce Perth nabs ex-303 MullenLowe Perth's Joe Hawkins for creative group role

4 (1).jpgAward winning creative Joe Hawkins has departed 303MullenLowe, Perth to begin a creative group head role at Marketforce in Perth.

Hawkins returned to Perth just over two years ago, having spent eight years working at some of the region's best creative agencies, including DDB New Zealand, R/GA Singapore, and Saatchi & Saatchi Sydney.
He's been awarded at every major local and international award show, most recently picking up three Silvers at the London International Awards for his IKEA radio work.  He's also had the rare honour of winning New Zealand's FairGo Best Ad Award - a publicly voted televised award - two years in a row for his work with MasterCard and the All Blacks.

Joining Marketforce is a homecoming of sorts, as it's the agency Hawkins interned at 15yrs ago, and where Pat Lennox and Ben Green were both working at the time.

Says Hawkins: "It's funny how these things work out. I've admired Pat and Ben's work for bloody ages, and we've kept in touch over the years.  Needless to say when the casual chats started turning a little more casual job interview, I was pretty excited."

Says Lennox: "We're thrilled to have someone of Joe's caliber in our agency. His combination of local, national and international experience is rare in this market, and it's something we believe is of great benefit to our clients. We all can't wait to get started."
