Havas brings on board Vivek Dhyani as Group Creative Director, India

Vivek Dhyani has joined Havas formerly Havas Worldwide in Gurgaon as Group Creative Director from August Communications, where he was, till recently, one of the founder-directors.

Dhyani, who started off as a scriptwriter with the All India Radio, Najibabad, has spent over 19 years in the advertising industry with Saatchi & Saatchi, Capital Advertising, Grey Worldwide, McCann-Erickson and August Communications. He has worked on brands such as Hyundai Santro, Panasonic, Maruti Suzuki WagonR, Maruti Suzuki Corporate, Escotel Mobile Communications, LG, LML Motorcycles, Samsung, Aviva Life Insurance, Wrigley’s, Incredible India, Nescafe, Coca-Cola, Perfetti Van Melle, General Motors, Dabur and MetLife, amongst others.

Nima Namchu, CCO Havas India said, “I bumped into Vivek during my stint with Capital Advertising and later at McCann. He is the kind of writer who always leans towards writing copy with bite. Just to give you a taste of what you can expect from him - he came up with "Baaki sab gayetel lene.", when he was asked to write a poster on fuel economy for Maruti Suzuki.”

At Havas, Dhyani will partner Senior Creative Director Anuranjan Dogra and will be handling some of the agency’s main brands.

Navin Theeng, ECD Havas India, Gurgaon said, “Dhyani is a potent addition to the creative team that we have at Havas. A much-loved and respected creative in the Delhi advertising circle, I'm sure his humour and unique way of looking at things will give our work a new dimension.”
