Kevin Hauswirth

Principal / Julia Child Enthusiast

Kevin works alongside big names in brands, advocacy, and politics to orchestrate strategies and assemble the right teams to help organizations shine. In 2015, he left agency life to pursue passion projects for causes and clients close to his heart. The plan was never to start a new agency, but here we are.

Kevin has earned a reputation for creatively making “the wonky” relevant to get people engaged around complex policies and issues. This skill was recognized by Mayor Rahm Emanuel who appointed Kevin to run digital communications across multiple agencies for the City of Chicago and serve as an official spokesperson on innovation. Over his career working both in-house and alongside Fortune 500 companies, advocacy organizations and elected officials, Kevin navigates new public opinion realities and leads cross-agency teams. He knows what it takes to establish strong brand personalities while keeping a clear eye on the big picture.

Having designed and taught college courses at undergraduate and graduate levels, Kevin continues to advise higher education leadership and is a regular guest lecturer. In 2019, Kevin was named as one of Crain’s Chicago Business’s Notable LGBTQ Executives, along with a lot of familiar faces and friends of H/Co. He also serves on the Board of Trustees for Adler University and the Board of Directors for Equality Illinois. Kevin lives where his clients need him, but his mail is delivered to Chicago.
