The appointment comes as Havas reimagines the future and focuses on seamlessly integrating customer experience, activation, content, brand experience, and media experience with the elevated Havas Market× offering.

Virginia Hyland, CEO of Havas Media Group, said, “There is no better person than Rebecca from across our entire industry who is proven to deliver serious growth for marketers. Rebecca’s deep expertise in ecommerce, customer experience, data, CRM, tech, and performance made her ideally suited to build on the agency’s momentum from 2022’s client work and growth.”
