August.One Communications, the consumer brand spun-off from Text

100, is headhunting two director-level consultants with consumer and

corporate experience, as the agency seeks to compete for non-technology

clients.



’Although we are a new board we have all worked together for a long

time; however we are all from a similar technology background and so are

keen for new blood and outside experience,’ said August.One president

Katie Kemp.



At present the August.One board consists of five - managing director

Tariq Khwaja, president Katie Kemp, EMEA director Stuart Handley, APAC

director Sophie Brooks and Sarah Howe, who is director of client

services.



According to Kemp, the agency is looking for one director with fmcg

experience to specialise in consumer work. The other position requires

more corporate and business-to-business expertise.



’We are seeking people who are used to advising CEOs and company boards

and have expertise running a business,’ said Kemp.



The directors will have a global brief as the agency builds an

international network. It has offices in the UK and Australia, but aims

to open another eight offices in Germany, Ireland, South Africa, India,

Singapore and North America within a year.
