“We’re absolutely thrilled to have secured Anny as head of brand. It’s a critically important role in realising our strategic plans, and we have a number of key initiatives launching this year that will be real game-changers for both the business and our clients.

“We couldn’t have found anyone equipped with better credentials to deliver on these goals, and drive innovation and leadership across our business.”

Commenting on her new role, Havercroft said: “Yahoo7 is a digital powerhouse in data, content and technology with an exciting future ahead. I am thrilled to join the talented team as we evolve the brand solutions offering for partners, agencies and marketers.”

Yahoo7 has also made a key new hire in the agency sales team, naming Mary Evans as group sales manager.
