After just over five years of working at Havas Host, the agency’s former head of strategy, Alyce Gillis, has left to join Today the Brave in the same role.

Gillis will work closely with Today the Brave’s present leadership team “to help release the agency’s proposition in the market while supporting clients’ brave ambitions”.

Her appointment comes during a time of growth for the company, with it having won several significant clients, including cinema chain HOYTS, Carnival Cruise Line, News Corp, beauty retailer MECCA, and more.

“I’m thrilled to be joining such a talented group of people at Today the Brave,” Gillis enthused.

“The agency’s belief in leveraging the power of brave strategic and creative work to drive business growth, alongside the energy and passion the team have for the work they do is a powerful combination.”

Gillis’ track record of leading award-winning campaigns in several spheres – creative, social, influencer, brand and PR – makes her an indisputable asset for the agency’s strategy offerings, according to Today the Brave’s founding partner, Jaimes Leggett.

“If our first year was about getting ourselves established in the market – recent months have been focused on supercharging our growth,” Leggett said.

“It’s the perfect time to welcome Alyce into the fold.

“Her unique combination of skills will be invaluable in shaping our strategic offering for clients, as well driving our internal ambition to make Today the Brave the best agency any of us have ever worked for.”

Thanks to its efforts in close client work, Today the Brave has been able to experience unprecedented growth by “tripling its headcount… and introducing fully integrated capabilities including Media and PR.”
