H/Advisors Cicero, the corporate communications and public affairs agency at Havas Village Dublin, has appointed former broadcaster Susan Keogh as its new Ireland Director. The move comes just sixteen months after the former journalist joined H/Advisors Cicero as a Communications Consultant after a long career in Irish media.
Susan will be taking over from Aideen Ginnell who has been promoted to European Director (Health) within the company. Her new role will now focus on supporting the CEO to grow the Health public affairs practice.
Since September 2021, Susan has been providing strategic corporate communications support to a range of Irish and international clients. With her unique understanding of Ireland’s media and political landscape, Susan has been helping clients devise and execute the most effective communication strategies to build profile with all stakeholders. Susan will now take a lead role in driving growth in the domestic market.
H/Advisors Cicero, with offices in London and Brussels, opened its doors in Ireland in 2018. The company was then acquired by the Havas Group in February 2020 which has offices in over 90 cities around the world.
Speaking about the changes H/Advisors Cicero CEO Mark Twigg said ‘Today’s announcement is really significant for our company and for the next stage of our growth. We are delighted Susan has agreed to take up the position of Ireland Director as we transition Aideen Ginnell to her new European role. We are very fortunate to have such a capable and ambitious team in Dublin and look forward to the next chapter.
H/Advisors Cicero, Ireland Director Susan Keogh said ‘Being part of the Havas Village Dublin gives us a distinct advantage to create value for clients across a full suite of communication services and in many different markets. I’m delighted to take on this role and particularly excited to build out our sustainability offering, Havas Genus, which we launched late last year, which brings together a broad set of capabilities to help businesses address their sustainability challenges. We’re lucky to have a range of exciting and innovative clients on our books and we’ve ambitious plans for what we want to achieve in Ireland’.
