National Agency Havas Formula Opens Denver Office

Aleda Stam at PRWeek: “Havas Formula is set to expand its U.S. footprint with a new office in Denver. The Mile High City location will be led by SVP Alexis Anderson, who manages work for some of the firm’s high-profile clients such as RE/Max and JPMorgan Chase, and Amy MacFarlane, account director for Havas Street, the firm’s activation division. MacFarlane leads its Beam Suntory business.”

“Denver is the sixth location for Havas Formula, which is headquartered in New York City and has offices in Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami and San Diego. Havas Formula is working virtually amid the pandemic, but will choose a physical office in Denver once the agency returns to in-person work.”

The Hits Keep Coming for DPS Board Member Tay Anderson

It has been a terrible past 30 days for Denver Public Schools board member Tay Anderson, and it keeps getting worse. Following allegations of sexual assault and confirmed retaliatory behavior while an employee of DPS, Anderson has now shared an apology with Westword related to his behavior while leading Never Again Colorado (NAC), a gun reform organization.

The apology follows a new complaint by six female NAC members that Anderson “created a work environment that made them feel unsafe by, among other things, ‘talking in code about female board members in front of them (with romantic/sexual subtexts), daring female board members to perform sexualized actions, having conversations comparing the attractiveness of female board members, and making lewd comments in private to female board members,'” according to Michael Roberts at Westword.

Anderson has always been a self-interested narcissist who clung to a veneer of legitimacy obtained by basking in the reflected light of real leaders like state Rep. Leslie Herod and community activists Elisabeth Epps and Brother Jeff Fard. Interestingly and tellingly, none have had a word to say about Anderson since the allegations surfaced.
