Anupama Ramaswamy, Anirban Mozumdar, and Kundan Joshee will continue to lead the agency.

Tarun Jha, who had joined Havas Worldwide India as the chief executive officer has decided to move on, to pursue other interests. Over the past one year, Tarun was instrumental in building the creative agency, putting strong processes in place, and hiring a strong team of leaders who have helped the agency witness an impressive growth.

Anupama Ramaswamy, chief creative officer, Anirban Mozumdar, chief strategy officer and Kundan Joshee, managing partner, will continue to lead Havas Worldwide India jointly and will report to Rana Barua, group CEO, Havas India, Southeast Asia, and North Asia (Japan & South Korea).

He actively contributed to important discussions and helped in putting together a strong and capable second line of leaders. I wish him all the best for the next chapter.”

Tarun Jha, said, “My time at Havas India has been a short yet a transformative experience for me, almost a refresher course that has equipped me to become a more adept and all-round marketer. Witnessing the ‘One Havas’ philosophy and the effective collaboration between the 20 agencies and specialised divisions has almost been a revelation. I look forward to applying all my acquired skills and knowledge to the art of building enduring brands and businesses, something that I have always loved doing.”
