Havas has scored athletic brand Puma’s global media account, following a competitive pitch.
The account was originally held by Publicis’ Blue 449.
In a statement, Puma said the media review was part of a larger strategy which seeks to “transform its consumer marketing approach and deepen its legacy as one of the world’s leading sportswear brands”.
It is understood the account is worth more than $150 million globally.
Commenting on the win, Havas Media global CEO Peter Mears said: “Data and performance marketing are increasingly important, but it’s creative, strategic use of media that matters to consumers, and that can help the brand succeed.”

“We’re thrilled to have Host/Havas on board to help us transform our business and make it a reality.”
