Backed with eight years of experience at Ogilvy & Mather Japan that earned him accolades at Cannes among other awards shows, Morgan will be responsible for raising Havas's creative strength in the market.

He will work with clients such as Air France, Alcon, Alpine Electronics, BMW Motorrad, Evian, IBM, Orbis and Pernod Ricard. The consumer-facing work of Havas Life Japan’s healthcare portfolio will also fall under his care.

"I'm excited to join Havas Japan, which has gained attention in recent years," said Morgan.  "I look forward to work with a smaller, more agile team." Under his leadership, he plans to broaden disciplines, bring teams closer together and deliver new heights of achievement for the agency. 

Stephen Cox, Havas Worldwide Japan’s CEO, described Morgan as a “world-class creative” explaining that a passionate affinity for Japanese consumers, the direction of client industries and award-winning experience across new and traditional channels is what “sets him apart in a very competitive market.”

Morgan moved to Japan from London in 2005, driven by his passion for Japanese fashion, pop and culture, which showed through in his work on Dove Japan’s Real Beauty campaign. Among other things, in his spare time he also produces a Japanese band that has garnered 2,400 capacity shows and a number one ranking on iTunes.
