Artemis is a breakthrough tool and Havas Media‘s Meaningful Brands framework and analysis takes the lead in the next generation business model. These are revolutionary ideas and I am looking forward to being a part of these developments and new thinking."

Vishnu Mohan, CEO of Havas Media APAC said, "The creation of this heavyweight and inspirational team is a testimony to our commitment to the region and the strength of the existing teams who have done so well over the past two years. The digitalisation of media and convergence of technology has created a totally new and constantly changing media landscape that requires new solutions.

We are proud of our teams and their achievements and delighted that some of the country‘s leading gurus have chosen to join us."
