Havas Group has promoted Virginia Hyland to the role of CEO, Havas Media Group Australia, following the successful integration of her agency, HYLAND, earlier this year.

Hyland will work with Mike Wilson, chairman, Havas Media Group ANZ and the agency’s senior leadership team to advance strategic plans for a comprehensive and agile media offering across Australia and New Zealand.

Anthony Freedman, chairman, Havas Group ANZ, said: “In acquiring Vigiinia’s market-leading independent media agency there’s incredible momentum in our team and with clients. Virginia is an impressive industry leader and entrepreneur, so we are excited about her taking the helm of our media business as it builds scale.”

Hyland added: “We are already seeing the power of bringing diverse talent together to create more dynamic solutions for clients. I am excited about shaping the next chapter for the media business with innovation at its core.”

Hyland takes over from Matt Houltham who departs Havas Media Group after more than four years in senior roles at the company.

“Matt has been a key part of our business, initially in Melbourne and more recently on a national basis and we would like to thank him for his hard work and commitment, never more evident and necessary than during this challenging year. We wish him every success in all that lies ahead,” said Freedman.

“I would like to thank Matt for his guidance and advice since becoming part of the Havas Media team and wish him success in the future,” said Hyland.
