Marketing communications agency Havas Adwork has announced the appointment of Matt Wiggers to serve as its chief executive officer, after switching from his previous role at Publicis Indonesia.

Reporting directly to Levent Guenes, chief operating officer at Havas Worldwide Southeast Asia, Wiggins will bring to the table more than two decades of industry experience from the perspective of both client and agency.

Guenes said: “Matt’s achievements with his great team over at Publicis Indonesia and PSI – Black Pencil make him the ideal choice to lead the agency. We are confident that under his strong leadership, the Jakarta team will provide quality work as well as services to their Indonesian clients and be brought up to greater heights.”

Wiggers added: “Of all multinational agencies, Havas is creating groundbreaking work in the way how they approach creativity with a business sense. Having the ability to adjust locally and not stick to a standard doctrine of operating, Havas is perfectly equipped for the swiftly growing Indonesian market. The global and regional management allows local freedom but at the same time inspires to develop into new areas. That makes it an exciting and energetic agency to be in right now, and I am happy to be part of the team that will reach a new level of leadership in our industry.”

Wiggers founded his own marketing and communications agency PSI – Problems Solved Inc in 2002 and he is a partner at LArive International.
