Harry Herber Articles 14

Harry Herber, has a passion for delivering on promises and an attitude that demands that The MediaShop ‘goes the extra mile’ - hence the agency’s “Open 24 hours… no problem” payoff. With a BA in Classics and Anthropology behind him, Harry plunged into the media industry in 1975, commencing his career at BBDO. He moved on to the Grey Group, where his eleven-year tenure culminated as Deputy Managing Director. After being recruited by FCB SA, which later purchased The MediaShop from Dick Reid, Harry was appointed to take over The MediaShop stewardship in 1997. Although Harry discounts his impact on the vast achievements in the media industry, many media commentators continue to recognise them. The Financial Mail presented Harry with its coveted Lifetime Achiever Award.
