Havas Creative India has announced the appointment of Anirban Mozumdar as chief strategy officer.
Mozumdar moves from 82.5 Communications, where he was chief strategy officer.
He will lead the strategy function of the agency.
Mozumdar will work alongside Tarun Jha, CEO, Havas Creative India and Anupama Ramaswamy, chief creative officer, Havas Worldwide India, as well as the leaders of the four creative agencies, Havas Worldwide India (Mumbai/Gurugram/Bengaluru), Havas CX India (customer experience), Conran Design Group Mumbai (branding and design) and Havas QED (Kolkata).
Bobby Pawar, chairman, chief creative officer, said, “At Havas, we believe that the future belongs to brands that make a meaningful difference to people and societies, and our conviction is supported by the results of our annual global Meaningful Brands study. Anirban has extensive advertising and marketing consulting expertise and a passion for high-impact solutions, which is why we are thrilled to have him lead Havas Creative India’s strategic function.”
Jha said, “Havas Creative India has been scripting an incredible growth story over the last few years. From a single-client agency, Havas Creative India has grown to a network of 6 agencies. Our diversified portfolio of offerings are exactly what marketers are looking for in this constantly evolving industry, and we will be bringing in more specialist divisions soon. Anirban’s induction will further strengthen the team, alongside Bobby and Anupama, our two strong creative pillars, to propel us into a new era of growth.”
Mozumdar said, “I join Havas Creative India with the conviction that I am entering an ecosystem designed for the future of this business, whether it is the 'Village model' (raising a brand does require a village) or unleashing the power of the data-driven Meaningful Brands framework to make an impactful difference to our brands and clients. I am super excited with what is being built in India (by Havas) and I look forward to working closely with stalwarts like Bobby, Tarun, Anu, and all the amazing leaders across the creative, media and health agencies in the group.
In a career spanning over 25 years, he has also worked with Publicis India and Mudra Communications, among others.
