NEW YORK: Red Havas has taken Peaks, its executive branding service, global. 

Peaks is designed to help C-suite leaders develop a personal brand that’s authentic, compelling and aligned with their corporate identity, according to a Red Havas statement.

“The expectation of brands has shifted. They are expected to take positions on these issues and are being held accountable for living by their corporate values and purpose,” he said, adding that pressure comes particularly from employees.
