Chris Howatson

As CEO of CHE Proximity Australia, Chris pictures a new type of agency, perfectly balancing customer consultancy with creative expression. It’s a vision that resonates. CHE Proximity is the 2017 AdNews and B&T Australian Agency of the Year, winning the customer experience and advertising categories.

Chris started his career at Clemenger Group in 2002 and, since then, has contributed in leadership positions at both BBDO and Proximity offices. He specialises in services marketing, leading business transformation programmes for Australia’s largest telecommunication, insurance and energy companies.

His work has been awarded at all major creative and effectiveness shows including Cannes, D&AD and the Effies, and in 2017 he was recognised by B&T as the ‘male champion of change’ across Australia’s marketing and media industries.

As well as a degree in Behavioural Science and Commerce from Griffith University, Chris has studied at Melbourne Business School and Babson College.
