The announcement:

Award-winning creative communications agency History Will Be Kind (HWBK) builds on a successful first quarter with two senior promotions and a new hire.

Talented senior leads Lizzy Chadwick and Rachael Gadgil kick off the year strong as they both step up into group account director roles. Rachael’s promotion follows an incredible six years with the agency delivering high-impact integrated communications programs and campaigns for long-standing clients such as Google, Hilton and McGrath Foundation. In her new role, Rachael will be working hand-in-hand with the management team to continue to evolve the award-winning agency’s service offer, with a focus on growth.

Lizzy’s promotion comes after a stellar 18 months at the agency, where she’s brought deep sector expertise across travel, tourism and lifestyle to the team, while leading a broad mix of clients including Celebrity Cruises, Little Moons and Life360. In her new role, Lizzy has been tasked with building and growing the team in line with the agency’s core value proposition, overseeing everything from the agency’s industry leading BeKIND benefits, to training and development opportunities.

These two promotions coincide with the hire of Brooke Gascoigne, who joins in the role of senior account executive from communications agency, Adhesive. A consumer comms specialist, Brooke brings experience across a variety of lifestyle, technology, and wellness brands, including TikTok, Dyson, THE ICONIC, and Sony. With killer media smarts, Brooke will be working across Hilton, Little Moons, Randstad and Hnry.
