Havas India names new Vice President and Business Head of Digital

INDIA – Havas Worldwide announced on Tuesday that it has appointed Divya Uttam as Vice President and Business Head – Digital of its Gurgaon operations.

In her new role, Uttam will lead and drive the growth of digital in the city. She will also partner with Pradeep Nair, General Manager of Digital and Head of Havas Worldwide Bangalore in advising the agency’s Management Committee on digital acceleration and innovation.

“I have great pleasure in welcoming Divya into the Havas Worldwide family. Digital is not a division or a separate company at Havas. It lies at the heart of the agency. And therefore, it was critical that we find a sharp digital strategist with the hunger of a business lead for this role. Divya fits this requirement perfectly,” said Nirmalya Sen, Chief Executive Officer of Havas Worldwide India.


She joins from Razorfish and brings on board 10 years of experience in leading Fortune 500 brands through digital transformation by planning and executing their strategies across mobile, social media and innovative technology-based solutions.

Uttam has partnered with brands like Samsung, Dettol, Jaquar, Aviva, 7UP, DHL, Johnson’s Baby, Wrigley’s, Dell, Nissan and Volkswagen. She brings along with her a haul of awards including Spikes, DMAi and Asia Digital Marketing Awards. In 2014, she was also listed in Impact Magazine’s Top 30 Under 30 ‘Future leaders of creative and media agencies’.

“I am honored to be given the opportunity to lead the digital mandate for Havas Worldwide, Gurgaon. I have closely followed the agency’s inspiring creative work in India and globally and am really excited to be a part of a team that is driven by its resolve to be ‘always in Beta’. I look forward to delivering cutting edge, innovative and meaningful work for our clients aimed at delivering high ROI,” commented Uttam.
