Harms said: “I have been chasing Age for a very, very long time, so I am super excited to have him on board. We have always been aligned about the future of media strategy, so we can’t wait to build a super distinctive strategic product that brings that to life.

“Hiring a new head of strategy will also allow me to focus purely on my role as head of clients, unlocking further benefits for our partners. We think having two senior strategy resources in the business will represent a real superpower for Half Dome, seeing strategic thinking to permeate through the whole business.”

Cosstick said he was looking forward to joining Half Dome and working with the team to “future-proof clients’ communication strategies and design transformative solutions that combine creativity, technology, and pragmatism.”

“Developments in AI and marketing science make it an exciting time to work in communication and media planning,” he added.

Cosstick’s appointment follows Half Dome’s recent major refresh of its brand, strategy, and identity with the launch of “Whole Potential”.
