Havas Group announced today that Andrew Benett, current Global CEO of Havas Creative Group and Havas Worldwide leaves the company after the strong restructuration of the leadership team and the regional organization experienced at both Havas creative and media arms.
Yannick Bolloré, will add the responsibility as Global CEO of Havas Creative Group to his current role as Chairman and CEO of Havas Group.
The leadership changes are effective immediately.
Yannick Bolloré underscored: “It’s a very exciting time for Havas. We are well on our way to realizing our goal of being the most integrated and innovative communications group of our industry. I would like to thank Andrew for the fantastic job he has done in implementing our ‘Together’ strategy and building the organization to what it is today, as well as the impact he has made throughout Havas over the last 13 years. I wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”
Benett joined Havas Worldwide, then known as Euro RSCG Worldwide, in 2004 as Global Chief Strategy Officer. Since then, he has run the flagship New York office, the Arnold global micro network, and was appointed Global CEO of Havas Creative Group and Havas Worldwide in January 2014. He also held the role of Chief Strategy Officer for Havas Creative Group. Under his leadership, the creative group went through huge growth and transformation.
Andrew Benett said: “I’m thankful to Havas and to all the people that I’ve been fortunate enough to work with. I believe the truly integrated model that we have built together is poised for tremendous success. Having now implemented a strong leadership team and new regional organizational structure, Havas is ready for a new chapter and I’m extremely proud of our results.
