Pinnington: ‘the time is right’

Chris Pinnington, the global chief operating officer at Havas Worldwide, is stepping down after 30 years at the company.

Pinnington, who is not being replaced, is planning to dedicate more time to his non-executive directorships. He relinquishes his position with immediate effect but will continue working at Havas in a consultancy role a few days a week for the next 12 months.

Pinnington said: "I have had the most brilliant 30 years at Havas working with talented and, most importantly, fun people. But there is a moment when you feel the time is right to go and do other things that excite you."

He has non-executive jobs at companies including the sustainability agency Futerra and the retailer Heal’s.

Pinnington started his career at Havas in 1983, joining WCRS, which was then part of Eurocom/Havas. He became the global chief op­erating officer at Havas Worldwide in 2007.
