NavinTheeng has joined Havas Worldwide as Executive Creative Director, Gurgaon

MUMBAI: NavinTheeng has joined Havas Worldwide as Executive Creative Director, Gurgaon. He moves from Cheil Worldwide, Gurgaon where he was Group Creative Director leading a team handling Samsung mobiles, televisions and home appliances besides other business. Navin replaces the erstwhile ECD team of Nakul Sharma and TirthaGhosh.

“At Havas, we are working towards not just blurring the line between digital and traditional creative but completely erasing it. And a creative leader who is comfortable with and excited by both is what we needed. I think we have found that person in Navin”, said Nima DT Namchu, Chief Creative Officer, Havas Worldwide, India. Theeng will report to Namchu and will be responsible for digital and traditional creative output of Gurgaon office.

Welcoming Navin aboard, Chief Executive Officer, NirmalyaSen said – “Navin’s appointment is a part of our further strengthening of our already robust offering in Gurgaon. Navin brings with him not just an impressive track record as a creative mind, but also a reputation for leading his team to creative excellence. I wish him great success with Havas Worldwide.”

“It’s a bit of a homecoming”, said Theeng. This is his second stint at the agency after a fairly long first stint. “But other than that, everything has changed. Technology was a bit of a bugbear 10 years back, but now the possibilities are endless. You can expect to see more technology-infused ideas coming from Havas.”

In the 18 years he has been in the industry, Navin has worked with Bates, McCann Erickson, Euro RSCG, Rediffusion DY&R, Contract and Cheil handling brands across categories such as consumer durables, colas, airlines, mobile phones, liquor, real estate and sports.

Along the way, he has won accolades at Cannes, The One Show, New York Festival, Spikes Asia and Goafest Abbys with quite a few of the wins in the ‘Integrated Category led by Digital’.
