Carle Coppens joins Havas

MONTREAL, September 5, 2018 — Havas Montréal is proud to announce that Carle Coppens has joined our team as Senior Vice President and Creative Director.

“Carle needs no introduction. While at Brad, recently acquired by Ogilvy, he actively contributed to expanding the agency and helped it earn many prizes in just a few short years. His hiring is part of our agency’s commitment to further develop our reputation both locally and internationally with strong creative,” commented Jan-Nicolas Vanderveken, President and CEO of Havas Montréal.

“Havas Montréal has made enormous strides in recent years and I am eager to make my own contributions. There are many factors that influenced my decision—the shared desire to explore new creative paths, of course, but also the substance of the teams already in place. Havas has the depth to go the distance,” added Coppens.

In his 20+ years of experience, Carle Coppens has been creative director at BCP, Publicis, Brad and Ogilvy. His campaigns, as well as his work as an author, have garnered countless prizes, including honours from Cannes Lions, Epica, Act Responsible, Communication Arts, Marketing Awards and the Créa Awards, which he also helmed the jury of in 2016.
