Congratulations, 2023 Changemakers!

Congratulations, 2023 Changemakers!

December 15, 2023

Change • Maker (noun)

An individual who doesn’t just embrace HLK values — they live them. They consistently challenge the status quo to bring new solutions for our clients and teams. They change the agency, our work and our communities for the better.

Each year at our annual holiday party, we host the Changemaker Awards to celebrate exceptional HLKers who reflect our core values in everything they do. The three award categories are Be Thoughtful, Be Brave and Be Curious. There are three finalists in each category who are celebrated by the agency, and then one winner for each category is chosen.

We are delighted to congratulate our three exceptional winners for 2023:

Be Curious

Cason Mooney, Senior Account Manager

“Cason is a fantastic collaborator, strong leader and great person who is an invaluable asset for HLK. She’s a perfect fit for such a complicated brand that has an ever-evolving team like Traits. She’s made it her mission to be the cotton expert on Traits so that she can be the best resource possible for her teammates.”

Be Curious Changemakers

Be Thoughtful

Cori Wilson, Group Account Director

“Cori has been instrumental in helping our client find new and innovative ways to grow their business while supporting their team as they undergo multiple organizational changes. Her positive, thoughtful and can-do attitude helps both the client and the team at HLK navigate issues and helps the client achieve their business goals.”

Be Thoughtful Changemakers

Be Brave

Greg Litwicki, Account Director

“Bravery is the willingness to be uncomfortable. To try something new even when you’re not sure what the outcome will be. To take calculated risks with passion and enthusiasm. To throw yourself completely into what you do to better the work and everyone around you. Greg did this fearlessly by jumping into a new role, in a new department when the agency needed his skill set in a different way. He said, ‘yes, let’s do it’ without hesitation.”

Be Brave Changemakers

This year, we had a record number of nominations — a testament to the incredible talent and passion that fills both our brick and virtual walls here at HLK. We look forward to seeing what these changemakers do next in 2024!
