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.

He has led a multitude of large, industry-leading global clients and iconic Australian brands in the Automotive, Retail, Technology and Entertainment categories.

His award-winning work and experience in some of Australia’s leading media agencies will bring a wealth of experience to his new role.

Terakes said: “The role at Havas Media and to be a part of the Havas Group in Australia was an opportunity that I couldn’t pass up.

“Mike, Imogen and I share a common view that media is crucial to creating great communications and that intelligent and innovative media ideas go well beyond the traditional media mindset.

“The wider Group and Village also allows us room for even greater collaboration, as we have the people, skills and tools to make this a reality.

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

Havas Media Group Australia group managing director Imogen Hewitt said, “We’re building an agency that really understands and respects the breadth of disciplines needed to deliver smart, effective communications.

“Terakes joins our team with vast experience encompassing media, creative, strategy and trading.

“He is the perfect fit for our agency and we cannot wait to have him on board to help us as we continue to deliver ambitious work for our clients, inspire our people and nurture our unique culture.”

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.”
