Chris Cashen is to leave Carat next month to become head of media at Javelin at the start of March. Cashen joined the Dentsu Aegis Network agency as a graduate back in September 2010 and through his input on the Diageo account, worked his way up to account director. He is widely considered to be a talented and diligent media planner and buyer.
Cashen is seen as being both creative and strategic in his work and of a caring and considerate disposition. He writes a regular media column for Marketing.ie. He will replace Javelin’s media director Ruth Payne who will take on a new role at the agency. Javelin clients include Toyota, Irish Ferries, Aviva, Bacardi, Barnardos and Snap.
