Rémi Babinet

Founder and Chairman, BETC; Managing Director and CCO, Havas at Havas Worldwide HQ
United States

Summary

Rémi is the founder of BETC Paris, France’s leading agency, and Global Chief Creative Officer of the Havas network. Now in existence for 16 years, BETC holds a unique place in the international advertising industry.

Named “most creative French advertising agency” 12 times in 16 years, BETC has carved out a brand image that is original and resolutely modern for its many clients, which include Evian, Air France, Peugeot, Canal+, Petit Bateau, and Lacoste. BETC regularly wins international prizes for its campaigns. In 2010, BETC was cited as the second-best agency in the world, according to The Gunn Report . In addition, BETC’s infamous Canal+ spot, “The Closet,” was confirmed to be the most awarded film in the world that same year.

Rémi’s recent achievements include the Evian Rollerbabies campaign, which has spawned the most viewed online ad of all time (certified by the Guinness World Records at over 120 million views and counting.)

As Chairman of BETC, Rémi has consistently challenged the traditional limits of advertising, opening up his agency to new creative fields. Since 2001, Rémi and the agency’s TV production department have produced the PANIK parties in Paris, bringing together such artists from the alternative rock and electronic music scenes as Justice, The Film, SebastiAn, Jay-Jay Johanson, Archive, Peter Kruder, and Neneh Cherry.

In 2003, Rémi inaugurated the Passage du Désir, an 800-square-meter space on the agency’s ground floor dedicated to fashion, design, art, photography (showing, among others, Hussein Chalayan, Yohji Yamamoto, Viktor & Rolf, Christian Lacroix, the ‘Festival d’Automne á Paris’, Rineke Dijkstra, Ruri, Joana Vasconcelos, World Press Photo/Paris Month, and Dysfashional). It is Rémi’s belief that advertising should be open to and engage with the world around it, thereby creating new ways to interact with society and consumers.

Rémi is Head Lecturer at the Institut des Sciences Politiques in Paris. From 2003 to 2007, he was President of the French Art Directors Club, the association that represents advertising creatives, and in 2008, he was Guest Editor of The Gunn Report , which ranks the best creative agencies around the world. In 2008, he conceived and wrote the book BETC Paris: Global Advertising Agency , published and distributed worldwide by BIS Publishers. Recently, Rémi served as foreman of the D&AD TV advertising jury and was voted onto the Andys jury. He has also been President of the Film, Press, Outdoor, Radio and the Integrated juries at Spikes Asia.

In recent years, Rémi Babinet has focused his efforts on creating a micro network in five international locations. BETC London, opened in June 2011, was the first step in the development of this network. BETC London will build an independent roster of domestic U.K. clients and U.K.-based global clients.
