Who We Are

Havas PR (@havasprus) is the North American earned-media and buzz agency within French holding company Havas, a top five global advertising and communications services group. Our 80 PR pros work in New York City (headquarters), with offices in Austin, Boston, LA, Pittsburgh and Providence. We’ve seen rapid growth in the past two years.

Havas PR has been named three years in a row to PR News’ three-year-old CSR A-List. We just swept the Bulldog Reporter Not-for-Profit Awards, including Grand Prize, and were named its Global Agency of the Year in 2013—and given a bronze for our skill with managing multinational accounts. In 2013, we landed at No. 17 on The New York Observer’s PR Power 50. Overall, Havas PR has become one of the most-awarded PR agencies of our size, with 296 honors since 2009.

We are a leading member of the Havas PR Global Collective (we like to say that we’re “networked” rather than “a network,” symbolizing our communal, supportive state of mind and way of working). Our two dozen–plus agencies worldwide lay claim to truly best-in-class assets, and we are the ninth-largest PR group in the world. Havas PR North America’s CEO, Marian Salzman, serves as chair of the Collective.
