Hatwit was born out of a passionate commitment to build a company bringing most dedicated people and teams together, for the greater achievements. Seekers of the naturally open and humane values, we are believers of the fresh and the original, in action beyond the industry status quo. We are ambitious searchers of the utmost results and love the exploration. So where does our name come from? Two words juxtaposed are our magical formula that says simply who we are: Hat + Wit.
HAT: this humble ubiquitous item has the perfect richness of telling what we do. We all have jobs and responsibilities, or better said ‘hats to fill’ and it’s our drive to find the best fit for each of them.
WIT is our perfect noun saying how we always seek to do it all. Its definition says it best: “inventive thought and quick understanding; a natural aptitude for using words and ideas in a quick and inventive way to create humour”. Or in our own words: being smartly agile, while being ourselves.
