Helen Godley and Jon Chapman have been appointed as creative directors at global healthcare communications agency Havas Lynx as it looks to build a centre of creative talent equal to its digital capabilities.

We can continue to produce the highest quality work from our brilliantly diverse studio and demonstrate how we can use our creativity for good. The growing global client base and range of work we have is challenging but equally rewarding and I can't wait to continue and build our creative strength going forward.”

Havas Lynx CEO, Dave Hunt, added: “The brief for our two new creative directors is to drive and develop our creative brilliance. Helen and Jon have demonstrated outstanding dedication and creativity time and time again.
