Hagen will join Carat at the end of October from MPG Media Contacts, where he is a managing partner, strategy. Before that, he was the head of data at the Havas-owned agency for six years.

Reporting to Morris, Hagen will lead the restructured planning team. Carat recently dropped the distinction between digital and traditional planning in favour of a cross-platform approach.
