Havas Group India has appointed Manas Lahiri as General Manager, who will be operating from Gurgaon. Lahiri's mandate includes bringing in new business and managing overall operations of the Delhi branch and leveraging Havas Group’s integrated capabilities.

Working across various sectors including IT, Telecom, FMCG and Auto, Lahiri has managed top brands such as General Motors, Google, Dabur Samsung, Motorola, Lenovo, Amazon, Shell, Acer, NIIT and Reliance.
Commenting on the appointment Rana Barua, Group CEO, Havas Group India, said, “For Havas India Advertising operations in North, we needed a driven and capable leader who is not only aligned with our vision of exponential growth in terms of winning new clients, attracting versatile talent, and demonstrating our integrated strength, but who is also equally comfortable in leading a strong Havas team and our partnership with Reckitt Benckiser. In Manas we have the perfect leader who will help me drive both mandates and make our operations stronger and more relevant, both externally and internally.”
“I am very excited to be part of the Havas India team. The concept of ‘Better Together’ truly comes to life here with our various offerings from Havas and our partnering companies from Vivendi Group. We now need to strengthen our communication solutions to local and global clients. My focus will be on driving aggressive business growth, creating exciting work for our clients and building a team that lives up to Havas’s global standards of creativity,” added Lahiri.
