Stuart Lunn has today been announced as the incoming Managing Director of the Manchester office at Havas Media.
Lunn takes up the newly-created role having previously worked as Marketing Director at Wienerberger AG, global providers of building materials and infrastructure solutions. He was previously Vice-President for Strategic Projects at MAG.
As new Manchester MD, Lunn will lead Havas Media’s business in key out-of-London areas, ensuring competitiveness – and report to Matt Adams, Havas Group Media UK & Ireland CEO. Lunn will be at the head of a broader growth strategy for the regional hub, based in Manchester.
Lunn said: “Havas Media is focused on evolving, as part of an ever-changing market. Matt’s vision for that resonated with me, as someone who’s worked across the value and supply chain and seen the need to disrupt and transform first-hand.
“I believe we have a clear, compelling positioning to work to, and I am excited to start speaking to clients about that proposition. Excellence in client servicing will be at the heart of everything we do.”
Matt Adams, CEO at Havas Group Media UK & Ireland, said: “Stu is a fantastic hire for us. He has an impressive depth and breadth of experience, working in agencies, media owners and as a client, and he’s massively well-connected. I’m very happy to see him taking on this new role as we increase our investment in Manchester and seek to further strengthen our regional offering.”
