AGENCY REPORT CARD: Here’s how Havas Media survived a challenging year in 2020, with top management departures and slowing business.

In a tough year, Havas Media loses focus

Havas Media endured a mixed year in 2020, where it saw the departure of senior executives, beginning with Anita Nayyar (and hiring of Mohit Joshi) as the India and southeast Asia CEO and endin the year with 25-year veteran Vishnu Mohan’s exit in early 2021. In between, the agency gamely tried to boost its business in APAC, with wins such as Florentia Village Outlets in China and Grab in Indonesia in the year, but struggled for traction.

Our full Agency Report Card on Havas Media—including the overall grade plus a detailed analysis and scores for management; innovation; clients and business; creativity; and people and diversity—is available only to Campaign Asia-Pacific members.
