Chief Creative Officer, Havas Lynx


Hunger beats talent they say.

Which is lucky, as Tom’s got a voracious appetite for creativity, life and positive change, especially in the world of healthcare. His insatiable hunger has made a huge impact at Havas Lynx where he drives creative standards as Chief Creative Officer. In an astonishingly short space of time, he’s grown the creative department to over 80, including 10 awesomely talented Creative Directors.

And 2018 saw Havas Lynx crowned Cannes Lions Healthcare Agency of The Year.

Prior to his current healthcare role, he cut his teeth on an impressive list of consumer clients and agencies including Cheetham Bell, Faulds, JWT, BJL and TBWA.

His awards pantry is full of Lions, Pencils, Sharks, Epicas, Creative Circles and IPAs.

He’s also feasted on inspirational creative work on more than a few judging panels, including Cannes Lions, and after 2 years on the PM Society panel is immensely honoured to be Chair of Judges at this year’s PM Society awards.
