Our Story

A few years ago, Howard was Founder & CEO of a fast-growing creative business.

It was an exhilarating ride, but at certain key points in the journey he needed new skills, perspectives and connections to successfully turn his vision into reality.

The best way of doing this was to gain access to a pool of flexible, collaborative, top-tier talent with a proven track record and an understanding of what it took to build a modern creative company.

The problem? It didn’t exist.

H Bureau was created to fill this space.
