Tim Maleeny is rejoining Havas Creative, this time as chief strategy officer, North America. He previously worked at the holding company from 2013 to 2016 as the chief strategy officer and managing director for New York operations.
Maleeny also has a broader mandate. He will reside full-time in the New York office to also serve as president of Havas New York under the leadership of Laura Maness, chief executive officer of Havas New York.
In addition, he will work as executive sponsor on the TD Ameritrade account.
As a so-called “boomerang,” Maleeny says, “It felt like the right role at the right time. I admire the ambition of the leadership team, how they’re unafraid to take chances. I'm excited to be a part of this next chapter. As Havas Creative continues to expand its role as a true partner to the modern CMO, there’s tremendous opportunity to bring new strategic capabilities and creative approaches to their businesses."
Maleeny has also been executive director of strategy at R/GA, the chief strategy officer and general manager for Heat/Deloitte, and is a former head of strategic planning for Ogilvy.
