Havas PR North America

Offices: New York City, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, Providence

Havas PR North America is an earned-media and buzz agency with 315 major honors in the past five years, including Bulldog Reporter‘s Best Mid-Size Agency for Corporate Reputation and Good Works in 2014 and Silver for Healthcare Agency of the Year in 2012, plus being named to PR News‘ three-year-old CSR A-List for three years. We combine senior-level attention and counsel with the flexibility of a midsize firm.

Havas PR North America is an agency of news creators: We find the right story, get it to the right audience and get it buzzing. Our mission is to lead the market in cultivating nontraditional, high-impact communications that help companies, brands, causes and individuals quickly advance to their full market potential. By influencing the influencers, our newscrafting shapes opinions, changes behaviors, drives action and yields optimal results among clients’ audiences and stakeholders. We’ve been so successful at originating the next headline that we’ve sometimes changed everyone’s future (we popularized the term “metrosexual” worldwide to launch SAB Miller’s Peroni in the U.S.).

Headquartered in New York City (also our center for health and wellness and cause) with offices in Pittsburgh (center of excellence for B2B), Phoenix and Providence, R.I., Havas PR’s North American agency represents a diversified client roster and offers a wide spectrum of strategic and practical services in business-to-business communications, consumer and buzz marketing, corporate and public affairs, health and wellness, human capital, investor relations and financial communications, multicultural communications and technology. And as thought leaders in cause marketing, we’ve discovered the recipe for doing good and being profitable. No matter what we’re doing, we do it with a passion.
