A dynamic, visionary leader with a passion for business transformation and technology. I’m a modern leader & restless intrapeneur, relentlessly focused on strategic, sustainable growth.
My most recent role was running the Media Group for Havas – an 850 people strong & £85m revenue business with 10 different agencies. I led Havas in to its new ‘Village’ HQ in Kings Cross and the transformation to 50% of revenue being digital and 20% from non media, marketing services. I pioneered the #havastogether strategy and through service diversification doubled the EBIT in 7 years.
I was voted No.1 Agency Social CEO by Media Week, listed in Campaign’s Top 25 marketing influencers and have featured in the Top 20 of The Drum’s Digerati Top 100 list for the last 5 years.
I am passionate about the urgent need for change and re-imagination in the business world and a more inclusive, self-managed culture.
