Havas Media Group is to appoint Patrick Affleck as its new UK CEO, following the departure of Matt Adams earlier this year. He will join the group from Dentsu X, where he is currently CEO, leading more than 250 experts across digital and mobile media, creative and analytics.

Patrick has over 18 years’ experience in media agencies, with stints at ZenithOptimedia and Vizeum in both UK and global leadership positions. He also spent three years in the US, where he rose to the position of President of Vizeum US and Managing Director, Media at 360i New York. He returned to the UK as CEO of Fetch and 360i prior to their merger into Dentsu X in 2019.

In his new role, Patrick will be responsible for leading and growing the 500-strong Havas Media Group, which sits within the fully integrated HKX Village and boasts clients including Starbucks, Homebase and Dreams.

Patrick will join the Havas Media Group business in summer 2020.

I’m delighted to welcome him to Havas Media Group and look forward to seeing how he helps us to continue to deliver more meaningful media experiences for our clients in the UK.”
