Havas Media Mumbai reports growth of 150 per cent in 2020-21

The group has added new businesses worth over Rs 500 crore in the current year.

Mumbai: Following the strategic restructuring of Havas Media Group India’s senior management a few months ago, the agency’s Mumbai office has reported a growth of 150 per cent in 2020-21, on the back of over 15 new account wins.

This includes ACC Cement, Ambuja Cement, ICICI Securities, De Beers Forevermark, Wai Wai, GITAM University, Dr Reddy’s, OZiva, and several others. In addition, the agency has seen tremendous growth on the back of marquee clients like Tata Motors and TVS Eurogrip and their increased media spends even in 2020. In total, Havas Media Mumbai has added a total billing of over Rs 500 crore in 2020-21, the agency shared.

In the last fifteen months, Havas Media bolstered its senior leadership team in Mumbai. Uday Mohan took over as president & head - North & West India, which includes the Mumbai operations. In addition, Manish Sharma was elevated as executive vice president and head of the Mumbai operations. To further strengthen the strategy teams, Sanchita Roy was named Havas Media Group India strategy head.

“Despite the market challenges, in the last 15 months we stuck to our task, defined our vision and kept investing in both our talent and product," said Havas Group India Group CEO Rana Barua. "In 2020, Havas Media Group India has garnered a growth rate of 35 per cent (RECMA June 2020) - the highest among all media agency networks in India."

“Our North operations have always been extremely strong, and now it's heartening to see the same being replicated in other markets," said Havas Media Group India CEO Mohit Joshi. "We have seen both organic growth and won some fabulous new client wins in the West in the last 15 months resulting in unprecedented growth."

“We are firmly aligned to the network’s global philosophy of creating meaningful media and brands. Havas Media Group is growing the business on four pillars - product, people, pitches, and partnerships," said Uday Mohan, who has led this unprecedented resurgence story of Havas Media in the West. "Built on the media experience [Mx] operating structure, each phase of the Mx process is powered by converged, an identity–based planning platform, which places the audience at the heart of the media planning process and capitalises on media that matters.”
