Havas Health Launches Updated Brand Identity for Health4Brands (H4B) Network
Merges London Havas Life and H4B Offices, Creating H4B London
NEW YORK (March 11, 2013) — Havas Health today announced the global launch of a new, updated brand identity for the Health4Brands (H4B) network. Inspired by the global rebrand of Euro RSCG to Havas Worldwide last September, the evolved look and feel of H4B was designed to better represent the unified, global offerings of the young, energetic H4B network.
At the same time, Havas Health is merging its London Havas Life and H4B offices – creating H4B London and forming a new H4B leadership team in Europe.
“The Havas Life and H4B offices in London have truly complementary skills and expertise, and no client conflicts. Strategically, it makes sense to merge these two great agencies into one optimized London agency that will continue to partner with key existing clients, but also has the strongest base for future growth,” said Havas Health CEOs, Donna Murphy and Doug Burcin.
H4B London will be jointly led by former Havas Life London managing director, Claire Dobbs, and former H4B London managing director, Brad Sellars. Together the duo will serve as managing directors of H4B London and will continue to report to Havas Health Europe CEO, Ben Davies.
H4B London, combined with Havas Life Medicom and Havas Lynx, establishes a simplified three-agency network structure for Havas Health in the UK.
“We are creating a stronger, well-structured London agency that bolsters our overall position in the UK – and this empowered agency will continue to fuel the growth of Havas Health in Europe,” added Davies. “Claire and Brad’s extensive experience and complementary skills come together to forma formidable partnership. I’m delighted they will lead what I firmly believe is one of the top health and wellness agencies in London.”
The London merger and new brand network identity are effective immediately. Outside of the London merger, there is no change in structure to the other H4B agencies around the globe. The H4B network is one of three agency networks in Havas Health, alongside Havas Life and Havas Lynx.
