Havas has today acquired Work Club, the London based full-service agency, which will now be renamed Havas Work Club.

Work Club, founded in 2007 by Martin Brooks, Jon Claydon, Andy Sandoz and Paddy Griffith, counts Pernod Ricard, Sony and Coca-Cola amongst its clients and has a revenue of £6m.

"It’s the confluence of brand creativity with media and data that we see in Havas. A network small enough and far sighted enough to build the first true global full-service agency approach,” said Paddy Griffith, CEO of Work Club.

The agency will now become part of the Havas Worldwide UK Group led by Kate Robertson, chairman of the Group’s agencies in the UK.

Yannick Bolloré, chairman & CEO of Havas, said: “Welcoming Work Club to Havas is another important move in the development of our global ‘innovation inside’ strategy. It further boosts Havas’ digital offering where creativity, media and data converge to produce a unique collaborative approach for our clients. Work Club is a dynamic and creative agency, and one of the best digital players in the industry. Being part of Havas will give them an international edge and scale. I am excited about our partnership.”

Havas Work Club will also work with global brands all over the world, reporting directly to Andrew Benett, Global Chief Executive Officer, Havas Worldwide.
