Havas Group today announced changes to its Singapore ‘Village’ that have restructured its leadership, effective immediately.

Andrea Conyard, CEO of Havas Creative Group Singapore, has left the agency. He joined as managing director in 2015.

At the same time, Valerie Madon has become chairperson of Havas Group Singapore. She takes on the newly-created role in addition to her responsibilities as chief creative officer. Madon joined Havas from Facebook in 2017.

Furthermore, Jacqui Lim, current CEO of Havas Media Group Singapore, has been promoted to group CEO. Lim has led Havas Media in Singapore since 2015.

Madon’s remit is to revitalise Havas Group’s creative strategy in Singapore, which she says will focus on “blending the best of both worlds: relentless creativity and smart media accountability”. Lim said she is excited to extend Havas’ Village model and its vision for the future.

Both will report to Vishnu Mohan, chairman & CEO of Havas Group Southeast Asia & India. He said Madon and Lim are “two of the most talented leaders with proven track records in driving operations and creative leadership”.
