Havas Media Group has appointed Josh Gallagher as regional strategy director.
Based in Singapore, Gallagher will report into SK Biswas, chief strategy officer, Havas Media Group, Asia Pacific. India will be among the countries he’ll be looking after. Prior to this he was communications strategist with ZenithOptimedia in Melbourne.
He said, “I had heard about Havas Media’s Meaningful Brands vision and found it very compelling. As brands enter the digital age it becomes critical for them to increase their meaningfulness quotient or they face the risk of extinction. The agency’s framework is a very unique roadmap for brands, as they embark on their journey to become meaningful and I feel privileged to have the opportunity to support this vision.”
Biswas said, “Josh is a very welcome addition to the regional strategy team. He has an unrelenting curiosity for uncovering consumer insights and is a champion of integration. He is one of those rare strategists, who have a hands on and practical experience of working on integrated strategies and expertise in both offline and digital communications planning processes.”
