Harvey steps up his role to focus on increasing integration across Aegis local agencies. He’ll have his hands on all areas including media, digital creative, search, PR and activations. The challenge he faces is to leverage each division’s expertise to deliver more powerful and effective communications solutions for clients.

Even with the expanded responsibility Harvey maintains his current role as managing director of Carat New Zealand, reporting to Luke Littlefield, CEO of Aegis Media Australia & New Zealand. That's in addition to providing executive support to the existing management and operations for ApolloNation, Synergy, Haystac, Vizeum, Mitchell & Partners, iProspect and Catch! Media in New Zealand.

After working with ZenithOptimedia and PublicisMojo, as group managing director across both brands, Harvey joined Aegis in 2011.  During his career he’s led major media accounts such as Telecom NZ and Tourism New Zealand and he brings that experience to his new leadership role
