Howatson + White co-founder Ant White departing agency

Co-founder of new independent agency Howatson + White, Ant White is leaving the agency, Mumbrella understands.

Howatson + White was officially launched in March by White and Chris Howatson who left CHE Proximity to strike out on their own.

The former CHEP chief creative officer and chief executive announced their departures from the Clemenger Group advertising agency in November.

Howatson + White’s online presence, including the website and LinkedIn account have been removed.

White’s LinkedIn still shows him at Howatson + White, although his mobile number goes to a message bank with no personal greeting.

Mumbrella contacted Howatson for comment on his co-founders’ departure. He said he was unable to provide comment at this time due for “legal reasons”. Mumbrella also contacted White, but he is yet to respond.

Howatson + White recently won Telstra’s Belong account for strategy and creative, after securing Allianz as a foundation client.

Social justice law firm Maurice Blackburn also recently appointed Howatson + White to its creative services account.
