Vivek Rao joins Havas Worldwide Mumbai as ECD

Havas Worldwide, Mumbai, has brought in Vivek Rao as executive creative director. Rao joins the agency from Publicis where he was creative director. He will partner Shavon Barua, president West and South, Havas Worldwide.

On the appointment, Satbir Singh,  managing partner and chief creative officer, Havas Worldwide, said, "I've been searching for a person to take charge of our Mumbai office and Vivek's name kept cropping up. Leave alone the right creds, pedigree and experience, Vivek is also full of enthusiasm and ideas about the way forward."

Rao started his career with Publicis Zen. He has also worked with McCann, Leo Burnett and Contract.

On his move, Rao said, "When Satbir outlined his roadmap for Havas going forward, it clearly seemed like a great opportunity to be part of the reinventing process. I will try and apply all that I’ve learnt over the past so many years to propel Havas back to a place of a creative melting pot. It’s definitely an exciting prospect and as long as one keeps having fun on the job; it just makes the task that much simpler."
