Havas Group acquires management consultancy specialists Gate One

Havas Group has added to its repertoire with the acquisition of management consultancy specialists Gate One, a move that sees the marketing services provider further evolve from its core business to an integrated service provider.

The move will furnish Havas with new capabilities and a significantly expanded presence at a time when competitors at home and abroad are engaged in aggressive expansion projects of their own, better equipping Havas to compete on equal terms.

Yannick Bollore, chief executive and chairman of Havas Group said: “Investing in the consultancy space is a bold move that has the potential to unlock huge growth for our Group in the UK and beyond. Meaningfulness is at the core of everything we do at Havas so it is really exciting to find a business like Gate One which truly speaks our language. I’d like to welcome the team on board.”

Gate One chief executive Tim Phillips added: “Our clients and the broader market are increasingly telling us that they need integrated digital, marketing and business transformation services and it was obvious when we met the team at Havas that we had found our future home.”

Gate One works directly with business and public agencies to overhaul their methods of working and will relocate its entire 70-plus staff to the Havas Kings Cross Village in London by early next year.

In September, Havas strengthened its Indian presence after buying digital agency Langoor.
