Jack Ladd has been with Hauswirth/Co since it’s inception, proving himself over and over again to be the consummate “jack” of all trades. He specializes in managing creative advocacy campaigns for causes and consumer clients ranging from statewide efforts to pass historic healthcare legislation to managing real-time social media strategy on a national taco truck tour.
Prior to joining H/Co, Jack worked at Purple Strategies where he got a master class in blending political-style strategy with top-notch brand expertise. While serving as the in-house digital communications specialist at Equality Illinois, Jack managed media relations and led the digital implementation of the organization’s first comprehensive re-branding campaign. His background in journalism working at the Chicago Reader during the 2016 elections solidified his passion for media and storytelling.
Jack graduated from DePaul University, where he studied Intercultural Communication and Journalism, helping to get DePaul’s first multimedia magazine, 14 East Magazine, off the ground. Jack hails from the Washington, D.C. metro area and currently sits on the Advocate Board of Chicago House, a Chicago-area social services non-profit organization serving families and individuals impacted by HIV/AIDS and LGBTQ+ marginalization.
