Addressing this point, the new managing director commented: “My goal is to drive a process which will lead us to becoming a company with a deeply non-conformist spirit, and with a simple structure that enables us to be able to make speedy decisions and with our own distinctive culture allowing us to meet the expectations of clients and the professionals involved in this project more effectively.”

Up until now she filled the post of director of operations and strategic development at Havas Group Media Iberia, where she already sat on the Group’s Executive Committee.
