Havas Indonesia has launchedÂ Havas Village Jakarta, anÂ integrated office that houses creative, media, digital, PR and all the specialist brandsÂ of the agency group, under one roof.
Havas Village Jakarta becomes the 39th villageÂ to be launched by the group, and embodies the groupâ€™s â€śTogetherâ€ť approach, aÂ collaborative model that aims to provide clients seamless integrated solutions withÂ digital at the core. Havas Village Jakarta is also the 16th village in APAC.
This move reflects the Havas Groupâ€™s desire to reinforce its position as the mostÂ integrated of all the communications groups and its ambition to further strengthenÂ creative and media integration by increasing shared platforms, encouragingÂ synergies and promoting joint entities. It will also deliver operational efficiency andÂ facilitate new Havas offers such as events, production, and content.
Havas Village Jakarta was officially launched by Franceâ€™s creative legend Jacques SĂ©guĂ©la, VP of Global Creativity at Havas, in an event attended by clients, partners,Â employees and the regional leaders of Havas.
SeguelaÂ said: â€śI am very honoured to be invited as the chief guest for the launch of HavasÂ Village Jakarta. The idea of media and creative being located together is very closeÂ to my heart. I had been rooting for this structure for the last ten years and it isÂ satisfying to see it become a reality. I strongly believe that clients are looking forÂ coherence in marketing and do not want to go to different agencies for differentÂ needs.â€ť
Matt Wiggers, CEO of Havas Worldwide Indonesia, said: “Our move into the villageÂ marks an important phase in the evolution of Havas Indonesia. To best facilitateÂ meaningful connections, the agency has designed an open office, where employeesÂ work together as one team to produce integrated ideas and solutions that are fresh,Â fun and meaningful. The aesthetics have been built keeping in mind the needs of notÂ only employees but also clients.â€ť
“The philosophy of bringing media andÂ creative agencies together has already proven to be phenomenally successful inÂ other markets. We already have robust operations in Indonesia and I have no doubtÂ that this move will make us stronger,â€ť added SK Biswas, CEO of Havas MediaÂ Group, Indonesia.
