Havas Lynx Group promotes Jon Chapman and Paul Kinsella

Havas Lynx Group has promoted its executive creative director (ECD) duo of Jon Chapman and Paul Kinsella to chief creative officers (CCOs).

The Havas Health & You healthcare communications agency said they would have joint responsibility for driving forward the agency’s creative vision and bringing a fresh perspective to its current offering.

Elizabeth Egan, president of Havas Lynx Group, said: “I am so proud of Jon and Paul. Having worked with them closely for two years now, it is without question that they are ready for their next steps to fulfil our bold ambitions. They inspire us every day with their creative drive and ideas that measurably change patient outcomes for the better.

“These promotions coincide with our recent Havas Health & You hiring of Icaro Doria as global CCO. Together, I believe the power of our co-CCOs combined with the larger creative vision of our network will be quite remarkable for the future of health and wellness.”

Chapman (pictured above left) has over 16 years’ experience in both consumer and health advertising, having worked across disease awareness, patient activation, brand launch and social initiative campaigns. In recent years, he has also been jointly responsible for the growth of an innovation hub within the Group.

Kinsella (pictured above right) joined Havas Lynx Group five years ago as creative director of Havas Lynx London and was promoted to ECD 18 months ago and became part of the Havas Global Creative Council. Prior to that he worked at a number consumer agencies, spending 10 years at Cheetham Bell JWT and three years at BJL.

Chapman said: “Working at Havas for the past ten years has allowed me to create work that has actually made a difference and helped people in their daily lives. This is a wonderful feeling and an ambition we all share at Lynx. Now alongside Paul, we can continue this on a bigger, better scale as we develop the creative vision to help drive the agency further, which is an exciting place to be.”

Kinsella added: “I’m humbled by this great opportunity. It’s an exciting time to be a creative in health and wellness with the importance of our category being higher than ever. With the help of the dedicated and talented bunch at Lynx, I’m looking forward to seeing the difference we can continue to make.”
