Nima Namchu, who recently quit Cheil, is all set to join Havas Worldwide India as chief creative officer.
Speaking about joining the 'Havas Village', Namchu says, "From the moment I met Nirmalya (Sen, CEO, Havas Worldwide India), and later Juan Rocamora (Chairman, Havas Worldwide APAC), I realised these guys were speaking my language... about being solutions-focused, being integrated in the true sense of the word, and creating work we can all be proud of."
Sen adds, "... Seen by his clients as a great ally with deep involvement in the growth of their brands, and by his colleagues as an inspiring leader, Nima is just the kind of creative leader we need. Equally adept at solutions across new and traditional media, he will play a defining role in our attempt to be the most progressive communications brand in the country. "
