The unit will offer clients more connected and bespoke solutions, drawing on the skills of all of the group’s companies: Arena, Havas Media (led by Paul Frampton), AIS London, SCB Partners, Branded, Havas Sports & Entertainment, Arnold KLP, Simbiotik and Cake.

Magnet will focus on crafting partnerships that leverage paid, owned, earned and shared media opportunities for consumers and brands.
