Tracey started her career with Lowe Howard Spink in the halcyon advertising days of the 1990s, where she was part of an agency who delivered award-winning work for clients such as Tesco, Stella Artois, and News International.
She moved client-side to Lloyds TSB before having a number of years running her own consultancy, working for numerous intermediaries and agencies advising on client/agency relationships and new business best practice. She then moved back into the agency world, joining Havas helia and taking them to Agency of the Year, before joining Publicis and working with Kitcatt Nohr and Digitas LBI.
Tracey joined Havas as Creative Group CMO in September 2015 before being promoted to Europe and UK Group CMO – a role in which she oversaw new business and marketing for Havas’ media and creative agencies in the UK and across Europe. She was promoted to Global CMO for Havas Creative Group in April 2019. She and her team have won Campaign’s Business Development Team of the Year for the last two years.

He joined Havas from adam&eveDDB in 2016, where, as Group Managing Director, he helped lead the agency through its most successful period, including winning Cannes’ coveted global agency of the year accolade.
Xavier has also worked for BBH, Wunderman, Archibald Ingall Stretton and RMG/JWT, running some of London’s largest accounts including Sony, Volkswagen, Audi, and O2.
In 2018, he oversaw Havas London’s certification as a B Corporation – a business that balances purpose and profit, and one legally required to consider the impact of its decisions on employees, customers, suppliers, its community and the environment. He also serves as an ambassador for B Corp UK.
Mark joined Havas in January 2016 and holds the position of Global Chief Strategy Officer, Havas Creative Group. He assumes overall strategic responsibility and direction for all Havas Creative agencies globally, across its 68 integrated Villages, in addition to his existing UK Village remit. Specifically, he has been tasked with driving further integration of its dedicated customer experience network, Havas CX, which launched in 2020.
Prior to Havas, Mark held the role of Group Chief Strategy Officer for M&C Saatchi where he ran the integrated strategy department. There he led strategy across a number of businesses including Public Health England and Virgin Holidays.
Mark also spent nearly four years as Marketing Director at ASDA, launching the world’s first ‘Price Guarantee’ initiative. Following this, he spent four years in Asia as regional CSO for two WPP networks, where he transformed the Coke Hands campaign into a Cannes Grand Prix Success.
Prior to this work ‘client side’, Mark was the CSO for Fallon, masterminding two of the country’s most famous long term media campaigns – Sony’s ‘Colour Like No Other’ and Cadbury’s ‘Glass and a half full’ of joy.
Vicki is a rare breed – a world class creative, a woman leading the charge and a force for modernising our industry.
From her disastrous career in fashion, sacked by the likes of French Connection and Vivienne Westwood, she discovered a love for copy when Paul Smith told her to stop trying to draw and write her ideas down instead. She’s worked on campaigns for some of the best agencies in the world – including Wieden + Kennedy, Mojo and Amsterdam International.
Her ‘Staying Alive’ film for the British Heart Foundation starring Vinnie Jones has collected more than 45 major awards, but more importantly it’s saved more than 50 lives (and counting). The Angina Monologues, also for the BHF, earned Vicki a coveted British Comedy Award. She also worked on the multi-award-winning campaigns for Vodafone and M&S and, most recently she oversaw the creative team behind the UN’s People Seat campaign with Sir David Attenborough.
In 2016, she became the chair of the Creative Circle Awards, becoming the first woman ever to hold that position.
As Havas London’s Chief Creative Officer she’s part of a very small group of women in senior creative roles and is an advocate for equality within the industry.
