Havas N.Y. Adds a Pair of GCDs

By Erik Oster 

Havas Worldwide New York appointed Paul Johnson and Keith Scott as group creative directors. The pair will be responsible for leading creative on the Dos Equis and TD Ameritrade accounts, as well as working across the agency’s brand portfolio. They will report to group executive creative director/MD Jason Musante, who was promoted to that role in February

Johnson arrives at Havas following a year as a freelance creative director and copywriter. Before that, he spent three years as an ECD at Saatchi & Saatchi, where he worked with Scott on the Miller group account, preceded by four-year stints in associate CD positions at both CP+B and Venables Bell and Partners.

Scott similarly joins the agency following a period as a freelance creative director/art director, preceded by three years as an executive creative director at Saatchi & Saatchi. Prior to that, he spent four years as an associate creative director with VB&P. That followed about a year and a half as a senior art director with CP+B after five years in the same position at David&Goliath.
