A recent move by CEOs of both AdWork and Narendra has brought about a fully integrated creative and digital agency, Havas Worldwide Jakarta. Under the global Havas Worldwide banner, both agencies aim to bring their specialist disciplines and expertise literally under one roof.
This merger marks the next step of collaboration for Havas Adwork, which is an above-the-line advertising, and Havas Worldwide/Narendra, the below the-line promotion.
The CEO for Havas Worldwide Jakarta will be Matt Wiggers and working with him will be Mario Sugianto, the new CFO and Amalia Prabowo, who is the Chairwoman. Combined investments, even after the merger, will continue with Havas Media in terms of data, CRM and digital solutions. Building expertise for FieldForce and Promo Activation, to name a few, will be an on-going commitment and investment.
“We’re excited to announce this merger because it brings all of our talents and industry expertise under one roof,” said Matt Wiggers.
“The combination of our successes in ATL and digital combined with one of the strongest Events, FieldForce and Promotional activation teams enables us to provide a powerful option for clients in Indonesia.”
Levent Guenes, the COO of Havas Worldwide Southeast Asia also stated, “The merger marks a strategic milestone and the continuation of our very successful transformation in Indonesia under a talented and promising management team made up of real experts in their individual fields.”
