Alex Carr

Havas Worldwide, formerly Euro RSCG, has appointed Alex Carr as managing director of its Sydney office.

The appointment is the first senior announcement since the agency rebranded in September 2012 this year.

Carr joins Havas from Saatchi & Saatchi where he held the role of executive director for the past six years, including heading up the agency’s Kraft business.

The rebrand, which saw both the Melbourne and Sydney offices rebadged as Havas Worldwide also coincided with the launch of Project Change – an agency initiative to bring positive change to the world – where staff took to the streets to give out free cookies to consumers.

Anthony Gregorio CEO for Havas Worldwide Australia said of the hire “We are delighted to attract someone of the caliber of Alex to join Steve and Phil and help continue the momentum of the agency in Sydney. He’s got first class credentials at top agencies with a wealth of quality brand experience.”

Carr added: “I can’t wait to join an agency that has real momentum. Havas WW is producing a mix of modern, collaborative creative work that is working its socks off.”
