MC&C hires Havas Media's Rik Moore
MC&C has appointed Havas Media’s Rik Moore to the newly created role of head of insight, strategy and planning.
Moore will report to chief strategy officer Genevieve Tompkins and have oversight of the agency’s planning framework. MC&C said he will play a key role in the shop’s renewed focus on partnerships, including how it works with media owners and creating new relationships with specialist agencies.
Moore was previously head of strategy at Havas Media. Before that, he served as head of channel strategy at WCRS.
Moore said: "As one of the longer-standing independents, MC&C not only has some strong industry heritage and an incredibly interesting client base, but there is a tangible air of excitement at the agency at the moment. Last year saw some major appointments and promotions, and it’s clear from spending some time with the team that they have a strong proposition to offer the market.
"To join them at this transformative stage in their journey is a wonderful opportunity and I’m genuinely excited about what we can achieve together."
