Havas Media Group Australia has appointed James “Zippy” Zipeure as the new chief commercial officer.
Of his appointment, Zipeure (pictured) said: “I’m delighted to be back in the agency landscape, in particular with the Havas team. Having worked in media for nearly two decades, I decided three years ago to step outside the day to day media landscape and setup my own business venture.
“This has been both invaluable and exceptionally rewarding allowing me time to get a greater understanding of what it takes to grow an idea into a reality.
Commenting on the hire Mike Wilson, CEO of Havas Media Group Australia, said: “James brings an unrivalled experience set to this role. As well as a great track record in senior investment roles in Australian agencies, he is a digital entrepreneur. His profile exactly matches the blueprint of Havas Media – a digitally centred, flexible, creatively-minded communications company.”
