Following multiple new business wins and continued agency growth, the position will see Terakes take on a senior management role across all Havas Media clients in Australia as well as several global accounts.

Terakes has built an impressive media career, with more than 30 years’ experience as a senior media professional.

“I’m looking forward to working with the team, my new client portfolio as well as the broader integrated agency.”

Havas Media Group ANZ CEO Mike Wilson added: “Terakes will be a great fit for our business and couldn’t come at a better time.

“Our commitment to client service excellence has been one of the key reasons for our continued success with existing and new clients alike.

“Our business is all about combining intelligent media with great ideas and passionate teams that deliver for our clients, and Terakes’ dedication to driving greater collaboration as well as his creative and strategic experience is exactly what we need to drive Havas Media even further.”
