â2013 has been a great year at Havas, the wins have been very satisfying. In a short time, I believe we have carved out a clear position for ourselves in the industry. Today we are a clear challenger brand, one that competition cannot but notice. Exemplary work and strong relationships have been key in driving client loyalty and our high retention rate is testimony to it. We are committed to an aggressive growth path â expanding existing businesses, cultivating new ones and tapping into fresh revenue strategies. The focus clearly is to add value to our clientele. Our teams have been strengthened and we are geared to provide innovative specialised integrated business solutions,â said Anita Nayyar, CEO, Havas Media Group, India & South Asia.
âIn an age when agencies are consolidating and becoming bigger, we are the only group that has simplified its structure and collapsed all specialised units under the Havas brand umbrella. It is important to have âspecialitiesâ and not necessarily âindependent specialised unitsâ. The end objective is to provide meaningful brand connections giving customers another reason to engage with a brand,â added Mohit Joshi, Managing Director, Havas Media India.
âAt Havas Media, we are digital at core. Expanding our digital footprint is our set mandate to enhance client and user experience,â commented Anurag Bhatnagar, MD-Digital, Havas Media India.
