Chime specialist tech agency, Harvard, has hired Andrew Last as Managing Director, Marketing. As part of the Harvard board, Andrew’s role is to help grow its integrated marketing services offering; covering everything from rebrands and content creation to awareness and demand generation campaigns. Andrew joins from award-winning creative agency, Earnest, where he spent 9 years as Client Services Director and a member of its senior leadership team. Running a sizeable client services function and with responsibility for the agency’s business development activity, Andrew also managed a portfolio of integrated b2b clients including Mastercard, Google and Samsung. Previously, Andrew was at global b2b agency, Gravity Global. Louie St Claire, Harvard CEO, said: “This is a pivotal hire and a massive coup for us. Our marketing services revenue grew by 54% in 2019 so now is the ideal time to support a growing need for a more integrated offering beyond PR. Andrew has spent the last 20 years in this world so his experience will be invaluable to our growth plans.” Andrew added: “Everything is in place at Harvard and within the wider Chime group to deliver best-in-class marketing and campaigns for global tech brands. I’ve been hugely impressed with the calibre of the people and the quality & creativity of the work already being produced here – and I can’t wait to help guide us to even bigger and better things.”
