Mumbrella understands the account is worth $6 million.

Havas Media Group Australia CEO, Virginia Hyland, said: “Havas Media Group has been appointed to Red Bull’s media account. We are thrilled to be working with such a powerhouse brand to help them grow their future share of wallet and opportunity to engage new customers.

“The team at Havas Media designed and developed a powerful strategy that takes into consideration how to gain attention, drive influence and deliver mass reach in a meaningful way.

“Red Bull was impressed with our future-forward thinking. As an entrepreneurial agency we are always challenging the status quo and bringing creative thinking to the fore in how to solve our clients’ problems. We are looking forward to the year ahead,” she said.

Red Bull confirmed to Mumbrella the brand will work with Havas for media buying specifically, but declined to provide a comment.
