Havas Media Group has today announced the promotion of Imogen Hewitt to the role of group managing director. Hewitt has been chief strategy officer at Havas Media since she joined the company three years ago, as well as jointly leading the Havas Village Australia Strategy Hub.

This year alone has seen her represent Australia on the Cannes Lions media jury, named ‘Woman of the Year’ as well as winning the strategy category at the B&T Women in Media Awards. Hewitt is also the Havas Group leader in The Agency Circle, the industry body which is examining the issues around diversity in our industry today.

Hewitt’s remit in her new role will be to oversee the agency’s operations across the Havas Media Group portfolio. She will continue to play a key role in the Havas Village model that brings sister agencies Red Agency and Host/Havas together to create seamless integrated services to best meet the needs of clients.

Working closely with Havas Media Group CEO, Mike Wilson, Hewitt will support the agency’s business growth and business development while she continues to take an active role in continuing to evolve the agency’s unique offering.

On her promotion, Hewitt said: “Over the last three and a half years we have built Havas Media into a business with solid foundations, talented staff and great clients. The opportunity to take the agency forward from here is brilliant. A huge focus and passion of mine is driving real integration between all areas of the Havas Village to help us develop the smartest strategies and most impactful ideas for clients and partners. It’s an exciting time at Havas Media and I’m looking forward to what’s in store.”

Wilson commented: “My time working with Imogen now spans the last twelve years and I’d personally like to thank her for the significant impact she has made in those years on the businesses and teams she works with. As a leader, mentor, strategy guru and a champion of industry issues, Imogen is without peer, and I am confident she will continue to help steer Havas Media to even greater successes in the future.”
