H+K London’s Chief Innovation Officer, Claire Holden, won Agency Innovator of the Year this week at PRovoke’s SABRE Awards EMEA 2021.

As H+K London’s first Chief Innovation Officer, Claire represents everything our agency values – a deep commitment to the craft, a passionate and collaborative spirit, and constant energy and appetite for improvement. Her 18 years at H+K are testament to how rich and dynamic a career, and how far-reaching an impact, someone can have while at a single agency; a rarity in the fast-moving world of agency comms. In her role as CIO Claire leads H+K London’s innovation agenda across our sectors and specialisms.

She is also the global lead of H+K’s longest-standing client, adidas – with whom we won this year’s SABRE EMEA Consumer Product Award for our viral campaign Rent-A-Pred.

H+K was also recognised as both the Middle East and Central + Eastern European Consultancy of the Year 2021.

The SABRE awards are one of the most prestigious recognitions in the communications industry and H+K was nominated alongside the top agencies in the EMEA region. The accolades follow H+K winning Pan-EMEA Consultancy of the Year four times since 2016, Pan-EMEA Agency of the Decade in 2020 and UK Consultancy of the Year in 2017.
