VP Los Angeles Division
Affectionately known as T-Pain throughout Havas Formula, Taryn Unruh survived the winters in New England to land back on the sunny shores of Southern California. She’s got a special place in her heart for sushi and a cheesy romantic comedy. Her competitive spirit engrained from years as a long-distance swimmer and playing collegiate water polo (paired with a more recent love of kickboxing and spin classes) has proven the perfect platform for leading the sports and entertainment division. Ever the optimist, Taryn lives by the credo: If life gives you lemons, you should find some vodka and make a cocktail!
In addition to a wealth of corporate PR experience (she spent three years in-house), Taryn honed her chops at Havas Formula by starting in San Diego's business and technology division, where she developed strong team leadership and account management skills across a wide spectrum of B-to-B, technology and consumer brands.
In 2013, Taryn was promoted to vice president and assumed the helm of Havas Formula Los Angeles division. In this position, she provides strategic counsel and creative program development for clients, while overseeing her team and aiding the agency with business development efforts.
