Chief creative officer at Howatson+Company, Levi Slavin has left the agency exactly a year after coming on board from Colense BBDO. He will be joining Ironclad Co, a cookware start-up founded by his wife and fellow Colenso alumni Joe Carter, in a full-time position. Slavin took to LinkedIn to announce: “After 20+ years of working in advertising, I’ve decided to leave the agency world. I’ve worked with incredible people, made lifelong friends, and lots of ads. Over the last few years, I was fortunate enough to bounce from Colenso to Australia’s greatest start-up Howatson+Co. While the job was incredible, and our success inarguable, living away from family became too hard.”
