Former Porter Novelli Exec Joins Yoxi

John Havens has joined Yoxi, a branding and media organization for entrepreneurs and organizations focused on social good. Havens will serve as EVP of strategy and engagement. In this role, he’ll lead business development for the company and match businesses with Yoxi’s entrepreneurs.

Previously, Havens was EVP of social media at Porter Novelli. Havens was cut from the firm during a round of layoffs this summer that included other firm execs. He was working as an independent consultant for Yoxi before being appointed to this position.

Earlier this year, we reported on Yoxi’s “Trim the Waste of Fashion” contest, which sought out companies with ideas for reducing environmental waste in the fashion and design industry.

Yoxi also announced a new COO and executive producer, Randy Makiej. This is a newly created position.
