About Us

OUR STORY

The name Hachiko comes from an inspiring story about a dog born in 1923 in Japan. This dog has been honoured worldwide for his remarkable loyalty to his owner – even many years after his owner’s death.

We adopted Hachiko’s name to reflect our commitment to loyalty and our clients.

Founded in 2012, Hachiko can provide global cover to our clients with offices across Australia and New Zealand and through our strategic partnerships, expand into US, UK and Europe.

THE TEAM

As a Reward Loyalty Provider, we come into work every day to help our clients achieve their objectives – and this can be seen in the work we do.

Fun & enjoyment is important! For us it’s incredibly rewarding to deliver great results. Our ethos when designing a program or creating a new design for a client is simple; we want to reward engagement and build loyalty.
