“This new chapter at Red Havas will see us integrating specialist expertise in experience, PR and social more deeply than ever before alongside our colleagues in Havas Creative and Media, to meet client demand for creative solutions that solve challenges end-to-end. I’m super excited to be part of this ambitious team.”
