Commenting on his appointment, Cawte said, "I am very impressed with the huge momentum at
Havas Media Group driven by the high quality of the agency's offerings. One of my main reasons for joining this agency was its unique model of integration with its sister creative agency, its strong digital focus, along with an inspirational leadership committed to creating a truly integrated agency. Knowing the agency scene in Hong Kong so well, I recognize the great opportunity for growth here and I am really looking forward to building a unique service offering."
