Havas Worldwide appoint Leo Burnett Singapore CCO Tim Green as ECD

Tim GreenHavas Worldwide Australia has appointed Leo Burnett Singapore chief creative officer Tim Green as executive creative director, filling the void left by Steve Coll who departed earlier this year for Droga5.

Mumbrella Asia reported yesterday of Green leaving Leo Burnett Singapore to return home to Australia. Green joined the Singapore office from the agency’s Sydney office in April last year.

Commenting on the appointment Havas Worldwide CEO Anthony Gregorio said: “We’re delighted to have Tim join us at Havas. He’s a terrific operator with a fantastic track record of award winning work on clients big and small, at great agencies. It’s a mark of the bloke that since it’s been known amongst some in the industry I have received numerous calls saying ‘great hire’.

“Havas has doubled in size in the last few years and there are huge opportunities here with our client list and the Havas Village model with advertising, digital, PR and media all working together to drive a different perspective on the way we work with our clients. Tim’s philosophy of ‘ideas that move’ marries up perfectly with the Havas Village model and the work we have been making for a few years now. We’re excited about Tim leading the creative charge.”

As an ECD Green has worked with Y&R in Brisbane and JWT regionally across South East Asia.

Havas Worldwide was handed the Defence Force Recruiting account in December last year, with the agency’s other clients including Goodman Fielder, eBay, PayPal, Virgin Mobile and Durex.

Green will join Havas in early December.
