Chris Howatson

Male Champion of Change Winner

Identified by the industry early as one to watch, Chris Howatson received the AFA Young Blood award for excellence in advertising at just 19 and has not stopped receiving accolades since with multiple Cannes, D&AD and Effies in his trophy cabinet. Always searching for ways to improve operations and results, Chris knew that having a healthy female representation in his team was not only morally correct, but was a great way to boost business outcomes.

In his time at CHE Proximity, starting in 2012, Chris has initiated programs aimed at increasing representation, that was achieved early and exceeded initial goals, ensuring pay equity through a gender focused salary audit and parental policies such as days off for senior females and extended maternal leave.
