Havas appoints two new CMOs

Havas has promoted Euro RSCG’s global chief marketing officer Matt Ryan to the role of president of global brands for Euro RSCG Worldwide and global CMO of Havas Worldwide.

Naomi Troni, formerly global new business director of Euro RSCG Worldwide, has been promoted to replace Ryan as Euro RSCG’s global CMO. She will now be responsible for managing the network’s global new business and marketing practices across all 233 Euro RSCG Worldwide offices.

The global brands Ryan will work alongside include Heineken, Dulux, Credit Suisse and Jacob’s Creek.

Havas says the moves reflect a period of “major successes and expansion” for the network.

Earlier this week, Havas reported a sales growth of 1.5% for the first quarter of the year, reversing a drop of 8.4% last year.

“Matt and Naomi’s key challenge in their new roles will be to ensure that we stay at the forefront of the industry, especially in digital. They are two of the company’s brightest stars, and these appointments reflect their achievements and our ambition,” says David Jones, global CEO of Havas Worldwide.
