Positive change agency, Think HQ has welcomed Rob Barnett as Executive Creative Director and Max Bengtsson as Senior Copywriter in their Melbourne office. The pair previously worked together on the client side at Xero.

Before his time at Xero, Rob freelanced at agencies including Leo Burnett, BWM Dentsu and JWT. Before that, he worked at M&C Saatchi for more than five years, and he has also worked for Isobar (now Dentsu Creative).

Max previously worked at Clemenger BBDO and Isobar as copywriter and senior copywriter.

Think HQ Founder and Managing Director, Jen Sharpe said: “I’m thrilled to have Rob and Max on board. Creatives of their caliber can be hard to find, and it’s testament to Think HQ’s growth, success and philosophy that we can attract talent like them.

“Rob will lead the Campaign and Design teams as Executive Creative Director, working with Chief Creative Officer Andy Lima to build on Think HQ’s creative capabilities and culture.

“Max’s passion for people, initiative, being forward-thinking and his love for the craft will see him lift both colleagues and creativity across the Think HQ Group. He’ll work across campaigns, new business, and technology collaboratively with the Head of Art and senior executive team.”

Rob Barnett said he's always been drawn to cause-based clients throughout his career: "I’m thrilled to be part of a growing agency where values and purpose aren't just buzzwords - they’re our compass. After working client side, I have a new appreciation and understanding of the challenges marketers face, as well as the insights and strategies required to have a measurable impact on their brand. I think creativity can be a powerful tool to drive real-world change, and what excites me most about joining Think HQ is the opportunity to make a tangible, meaningful and positive impact across a diverse range of communities.”

Max added: “There’s an overwhelming sense of elation being a part of the Think HQ group - almost like a breath of fresh North-West Tasmanian air. Their vision has stayed true since day dot and I’m stoked to have the opportunity to contribute and push the work creatively with the rest of the wonderful and intelligent crew here.”
