"We are confident that Havas Media will help Michelin further its journey with a marketing approach based on data driven and content powered strategies, increasing our knowledge of the consumer journey helping us master communications in the digital age," Claire Dorland Clauzel, executive vice-president sustainable development, brands, external relations, member of the group executive committee, commented. 

According to Dominique Delport, global managing director of Havas Group, the agency's "organic marketing approach" appealed to Michelin. The client, he added, has a "genuine passion to discover new ways of working to create a positive and sustainable vision for the future".
