Yelena Gaufman joins Fold7

We’re delighted to announce we’ve hired Yelena Gaufman, formerly Head of Planning at Havas Worldwide London, in the newly created role of Strategy Partner. Yelena is charged with spearheading our strategic thinking across our entire client base, ensuring creative excellence remains at the core of our business.

Following a two-year stint as Planning Director at Havas New York, she joined Havas Worldwide London as the Global Planning Lead on Reckitt Benckiser, later promoted to Head of Planning.

“Yelena has that combination of drive, curiosity and commitment to great work that hits you as soon as you meet her,” explains our CEO Marc Nohr. “Her credentials in New York creative agencies are impeccable and she’s risen speedily to the top since her arrival in London.”

Yelena’s appointment follows a bold string of senior hires in the agency; earlier this year Simon Learman joined as executive creative director, and Christine Beardsell will soon be joining the Fold7 ship as Managing Partner of Content.
