“When we were looking for someone to lead marketing for Havas as a group we couldn’t think of a better person than Bakht,” adds Havas Media Group Asia Pacific, CEO Vishnu Mohan.  “She is not only committed to Havas’ vision of meaningful communications and collaboration, but also shares excellent relationships with stake holders within the group.” 

“Bakht’s promotion is a testament to our collaborative ‘together’ culture, which allows us to leverage skills and talent available across the network, “said Havas Creative Group Southeast Asia, CEO Levent Guenes.

  “We are very excited to have her on board and looking forward to working with her to further raise Havas’ profile in the region.”
