It’s Monday and so the Havas New York purge should be well underway – a tidy office means no more silos (or rubbish) it seems – according to Adweek’s Agency Spy.
Bolloré-owned Havas is being bought by dad Vincent’s Vivendi media giant (which owns Canal+ and Universal Music). The agency recently reorganised itself into so-called “villages,” including New York (below) and a big new one in London’s Kings Cross. Maybe Vincent recently took a turn around New York and didn’t like what he saw.
This looks like one of those management initiatives where something got lost in translation. Maybe Havas thought this over-the-top Instagram announcement might raise a smile among its perplexed troops as well as make the point.
