NEW YORK, June 6, 2019 /CNW/ -- Havas Health & You (HH&Y), the global health-and-wellness marketing network, announced this week that Megan Rokosh has been appointed global CMO.

Rokosh will be based in New York and will report directly to Murphy.
"I have never felt more certain about health as a category of influence in the marketplace," said Donna Murphy, global CEO of Havas Health & You. "As we grow quickly and our scope of work broadens from health and wellness communications into technology, data, and platforms, bringing a CMO into our network became a clear necessity. Megan brings an unprecedented understanding of the greater Havas and Vivendi networks, an unmatched ability to commercialize and spark growth, and a profound sense of human purpose in our category. What we can accomplish together is exciting."
"The health and wellness industries are incredibly dynamic right now, penetrating virtually every other industry in the marketplace and evolving by the second," Rokosh said. "The combination of the pace of growth and the unique portfolio of Havas and Vivendi assets creates an incredibly unique set of tools to leverage as HH&Y evolves into its next phase. I couldn't be happier to join this incredible team at such an interesting and purposeful time in the evolution of the business."
In her previous role, Rokosh and team increased Havas' share of voice from 12th to fourth in the United States and co-created the Havas-owned platform "Bands & Brands". Before her time at Havas, Rokosh directed strategy for Rogers Communications, a $26 billion multimedia and telecommunications company.
