Lynn Madeley


Chief Executive Officer | Havas Worldwide - South Africa

When you ask Lynn Madeley where she comes from, she says she is not sure, not because she has amnesia but because she has lived on four continents and in seven countries. She has been in South Africa since 2004 and is very attached to the country because of its pioneering spirit and can-do attitude. Lynn has had two careers, the first as an international horse rider and the second in advertising and marketing. She has worked for the likes of Saatchi & Saatchi in London and Hong Kong, Ogilvy in Botswana and in South Africa was with Lowe before she joined Havas Worldwide Johannesburg (previously known as Euro RSCG South Africa) to run their South African operation in 2007. She believes in fulfilling potential, everyone’s, people who work for Havas, brands, companies, products, even her own and strives every day to maximise the potential of those around her.
