DÜSSELDORF, GERMANY // Dirk has more than 20 year’s experience working in the fields of marketing and communication. Starting his career in a small owner-managed Healthcare agency he moved quickly to client’s side working in the marketing departments for well-known, global brands such as Deutsche Post DHL, Sony and Johnson + Johnson (Janssen).
Usually you do it the other way around, but he decided to leave the client’s side and go back to his roots. For him the greatest industry you can work for! Inter alia he worked for Publicis Health as Director Strategy.
Now he leads Havas Life Düsseldorf, the German operation of Havas Health & You as a Managing Director. Havas Health and You is a unique and one of the largest health and wellness networks with more than 65-plus agencies in 50 countries and part of Havas Group.
