Logan Hodgson joins Octave as Client Director

May 4, 2022

Logan Hodgson joined the Octave whānau this month as Client Director. Following six years as Head of Client Service at Springload, he’s going to help us drive business growth, strategic initiatives and client partnerships. Logan chats to us about his background, why he’s excited to work at Octave and what makes him tick.

Kia ora! For a bit of background, I grew up in the far north, enjoying the Kiwi life of beaches, fishing, rugby and working on my Dad's building projects. I chose to study design at Massey in Wellington and immediately fell in love with the city, the coffee and the mountain bike trails.

I have worked in Wellington agencies or digital companies for the last 18 years, apart from spending time doing volunteer work in Cambodia. I now have 3 small children, who keep me entertained and build my patience!

What’s your favourite piece of work you’ve been involved in?

I won’t name one project, but I enjoy working on projects with tangible positive outcomes. 

Whether it’s helping non-profits get funding, sustainability startups launch, supporting health outcomes such as assisting ACC to improve recovery times, or gamblers overcoming addiction. 

The best projects are where you have open, trusting relationships with clients, and team chemistry often comes through overcoming or solving truly difficult challenges.

I feel the best results come out of those challenging periods, where ideas are enhanced and partnerships grow.

Why Octave?

I am excited about Octave’s mission to become NZ’s most interesting agency by doing truly different, important work. They certainly have some of the most talented and interesting people I’ve met.

I’m interested in how businesses can harness and integrate the power of data, research and actionable creative ideas to build flexible and transformational digital systems.

I'm a massive advocate for accessibility, equitable outcomes, and sustainability. It's about understanding the longer-term impacts of the digital solutions we create and ensuring they can genuinely support people.

I can't wait to deliver interesting and quality experiences, which is easy when you have a rockstar team alongside you. I feel lucky to be here.
