We’re chuffed to say that HUB has appointed Rob Shaw as CEO!
Rob, who has held position as CEO at esteemed agencies including Epiphany, Jaywing and CreativeRace, announced that he was looking for a new challenge in September 2022.
When he met up with HUB co-founders Chris and Helen Hudson, they hit it off instantly.
“Chris and Helen have an incredible work ethic and an incredibly close connection to both the clients and the people here, and that just completely resonated with me,” Rob said.
Chris Hudson, HUB chairman and co-founder, explains why he was so eager to snap Rob up as CEO: “We founded and built HUB on a core set of values centred around doing the right thing for our clients and our colleagues. Success for them is success for us.
“We approached Rob about joining HUB because, after a number of years of organic growth building our capabilities and our client base, we are focussed on the next phase for the agency. We knew that Rob coming on board would accelerate that ambition.”
Commenting on his new role, Rob said, “I’m delighted to be taking the helm at another independent Northern agency that has big ambitions for the future. HUB is already an integrated agency with an enviable breadth of capabilities from creative and strategy, across media planning and photography to web development and performance marketing. It also has an enviable client roster to match and I’m looking forward to working with the team here to plan and deliver their future growth ambitions.
“HUB is a hidden gem of the agency scene, and I couldn’t be more excited to start telling their story and supporting their growth.”
