Ant White goes from Howatson + White

By AdNews | 11 August 2021

Ant White is leaving Howatson + White, eight months after co-founding the agency. 

The AFR says it understands White does not have another role lined up.

He and Chris Howatson left CHE Proximity to strike out on their own.

Howartson, the CEO, had been working within the Clemenger Group, which CHE Proximity is a part of, for nearly 20 years.

Ant White was the chief creative officer. 

The Howartson+White LinkedIn company page has been taken down. The Instagram account is also gone. 

The website comes up blank. 

AdNews has been told the company has no comment due to legal reasons. 

Howatson+White opened its doors in March with 32 staff across Sydney and Melbourne and seven clients, all of whom signed on without a pitch.

Early account wins included insurance company Allianz, Telstra's low-cost telco Belong and social justice law firm Maurice Blackburn
