H/Advisors has today been unveiled as the new name and brand identity of the leading international strategic communications network founded over 20 years ago by Havas, one of the world’s largest communications groups.
Previously called /amo after its founding agencies, H/Advisors brings together best-in-class consultancies in more than 20 countries, offering a full suite of strategic advisory services to clients around the world. The network embodies a common DNA of excellence and leadership, as well as its ambition to continue its global expansion as one team, with the strong support of Havas and its parent company Vivendi.
Since 2018, the H/Advisors network has grown significantly organically and through the acquisition of leading communications and public affairs teams, reinforcing its presence in the US, UK, Germany, Ireland, Belgium, Spain and in Asia. H/Advisors is a top-ranking organization for cross-border M&A and communications. Last year alone, it advised on 368 M&A deals worth approximately €200 billion.
Yannick Bolloré, CEO of the Havas Group and chairman of the supervisory board of Vivendi, said:
“The new name and brand identity highlight H/Advisors’ ambitions for the next chapter in its history under the leadership of Stéphane Fouks as Chairman, together with Neil Bennett and Tom Johnson as its new co-CEOs. I am very proud to see how the network has delivered on the demanding growth plan we laid out in 2018. I have assured Stéphane, Tom and Neil that they have the full support of Havas and Vivendi as they pursue their mission of making H/Advisors the undisputed leader in global strategic communications worldwide.”
Stéphane Fouks, Executive Chairman of H/Advisors, said:
“The prism of communications provides deep insight into challenges faced by our clients. As H/Advisors, we offer a unique network across the world’s major markets, bringing together all the key disciplines essential to strategic counsel and the implementation to make it happen.

Our new identity is a clear statement of our success to date, and our continued ambition to be even more integrated with a unique name and branding, reinforcing our footprint as global strategic advisors.”
