"Amy's unique understanding of the digital consumer and social media strategy makes her the perfect choice and she will be fundamental to our vision of working with our clients to develop more meaningful and relevant communications."

Kean joined the Havas agency in January 2011, having previously worked at the Internet Advertising Bureau (IAB).
