James Wright has become the managing director of Havas Worldwide Group, taking responsibility for four of the Havas-owned agencies in Australia.
He has been given a bump up from managing director of PR outfit Red Agency, while he also had responsibility as MD of Havas People Australia, and Havas Worldwide Melbourne.
The new role will give him oversight of Arnold Furnace, but Alex Carr will remain as MD of Havas Worldwide Sydney.
To help Wright with the workload, the Havas group has appointed Aaron Crowther from Spectrum Group as general manager of Red Agency.
Wright was given a glowing endorsement from Havas Worldwide CEO Anthony Gregorio.
“James is a proven agency leader who has continually delivered above and beyond with his agencies. He has been a key player in the Group's success and what he has done with Red Agency in such a short time has been incredible,” he said.
