Dan Hagen’s career spans a multitude of sectors and disciplines in both the UK and USA. His work for clients such as The National Lottery, British Gas, and Diageo has been honoured with multiple awards and he has won Agency of the Year with both Carat and CIA.
Hagen cut his teeth at CIA Medianetwork on European roles for Microsoft and Novartis before moving to New York to ride out the first dotcom bubble and burst. He subsequently returned to London, spending several years launching the National Lottery’s interactive platforms and eventually rising to Managing Partner of Strategy at Havas.
He then spent the next 8 years at Dentsu Aegis Network, as Head of Planning and then CSO at Carat working with clients such as Mondelez, Asda and Santander; then global CSO at iProspect. He returned to Havas at the end of 2019 to lead their global planning product, focussed on creating better Media Experiences for people and brands.
Hagen is a regular at the judging tables of Media Week, Campaign, DMA and was a member of the awarding jury for the Media category at Cannes in 2017 and jury president for Media at Eurobest 2018. He’s always on the lookout for work that inspires its audience, but also delivers in spades for the brand.
