Vin Farrell Joins Havas Worldwide In Newly Created Role Of Global Chief Content Officer

NEW YORK, April 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Havas Worldwide announced today the hiring of Vin Farrell as Global Chief Content Officer, a new role for Havas Worldwide in which Farrell will further develop the agency's digital-at-the-core model by providing global oversight of content creation, curation, development, production and distribution.

"We're tremendously excited to bring Vin on board at Havas Worldwide," said Havas Worldwide Global President Andrew Benett. "And with the addition of the Chief Content Officer role, we're enhancing our creative and digital offering, and further establishing our credentials as an industry leader in digital and with expertise in content."

Farrell comes to Havas Worldwide from his role as SVP of Creative Operations at R/GA, where he served as a business partner to executive creative leadership. He is a recognized industry leader who helped build and manage the global integration and output of R/GA's digital studio, experiential, retail and presentation design capabilities. He has extensive experience managing cross-office, in-house production capabilities, across all forms of content. In this role, Vin worked closely with R/GA's global leadership team. Prior to that he was Senior Director of Content and Integrated Marketing Production at SpikeTV.com, and had previously worked as agency producer at Digitas. Vin also has a background in producing independent films—most recently, ME @ THE ZOO, which premiered at the Sundance Film festival (2012) and was distributed by HBO.

"The unique blend of global scale, agility and entrepreneurial spirit is what drew me to Havas Worldwide," Farrell said. "The company's strategic presence, social responsibility initiatives and collaborative leadership team promises to be a force within the industry."

In his new role, starting April 8, Farrell will report to Andrew Benett.
