Red Havas has also hired two account directors, Aiza Rusli and Candi Hindocha.

Rusli joins from Kite Communications after almost five years with the agency, leaving as an account director. Hindocha was previously an account director and head of insights at The Impact Agency, where she spent five years.

In January, Red Havas promoted Alex Erasmus to national head of strategy, expanding his responsibilities from the Sydney office. Erasmus joined Red Havas in 2017, and was previously general manager of Society Social.

Red Havas CEO, Sarah Trombetta, said of the appointments: “It’s exciting to bring together more diverse minds to keep elevating our data-driven strategies and creative ambitions in growth sectors. Alex’s leadership continues to drive our culture of curiosity to go beyond the brief and bring rigour to how we solve business challenges for our clients.

“Reema’s world-class creative lens fuels our ambitious consumer marketing team and Aiza and Candi deepen our specialist knowledge across corporate and technology practices to ensure we create meaningful impact where it matters.”
