Red Havas Brisbane’s executive director, Yasmine Gray, is leaving the business after more than six years at the helm of the office.

Red Havas has recently undergone a change in leadership following the departure of CEO Sarah Trombetta and One Green Bean CEO Simone Gupta expanding her remit to cover the agency as well.

Commenting on her departure, Gray thanked James Wright, the global CEO of Red Havas, for his support over the years.

“Having taken time out in my career to have my son, and now at 58 embarking on a whole new adventure, I hope it inspires people to realise there are no barriers to what and when you can achieve big milestones,” Gray said.

“I am grateful to James Wright for putting his faith and trust in me six years ago, giving me the opportunity to shine at Red Havas. I now look forward to doing more great work at McVeigh and cannot wait to see where that journey will take me.”

Gupta praised Gray’s contribution to the agency as being ‘exceptional’.

“She has grown Red Havas Brisbane to be a major force in the Queensland market; introduced new initiatives, some of which have been adopted globally by Red Havas. Her commitment to people, culture and building strong client relationships has enabled the Brisbane agency to thrive. I understand this is a new and exciting challenge for Yasmine,” she said.

National managing director, Steve Fontanot, added: “Working with Yasmine has been one of the highlights over the last few years. Her contribution, energy and passion will be missed. We wish her all the best in her new role; I have no doubt that she will take it on with the same gusto that she does everything.”
