Havas Health & You After has announced the elevation of Susan Josi as managing director of Havas Health & You - SEA & Middle East, and Sangeeta Barde as managing director of Havas Life Sorento.
The duo have been managing partners at Havas Life Sorento since 2017, when Havas acquired Sorento Healthcare.
Charles Houdoux, partner and CEO, Latam APAC, Havas Health & You, said, “These new appointments are incredibly well-deserved, and I am thrilled to witness as Sangeeta and Susan further showcase their immense talents and know-how, both regionally and globally. They have certainly made Havas Life Sorento a proof point for value addition in the area and will continue to lead with strategic vision."
Josi said, “The SEA and Middle East regions offer a rich scope of potential. The landscapes are changing dynamically and there is an intensified importance being placed on health and wellness. Our capabilities in these areas have grown to a point where it makes sense to have consistent regional leadership as health brands prioritise their presence in these markets.”
Barde said, “I am looking forward to leaning into the vast digitisation opportunities in our data and media centres and working to perfect new and simplified content creation models. Deep collaboration with groups and partners domestically and internationally is a necessary and exciting endeavour. I am thrilled to be taking this next step to connect the dots across groups and regions.”
