Havas Worldwide New York's Kersten Mitton Rivas Named 2013 Advertising Working Mother Of The Year

NEW YORK, Feb. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Havas Worldwide New York -- Kersten Mitton Rivas, Managing Director at Havas Worldwide New York, has been named one of the Advertising Working Mothers of the Year by Working Mother magazine and Advertising Women of New York (AWNY) in the Established Moms category.

Kersten has spent her career working on a variety of businesses from regional to global from traditional to social from CPG to telecommunications.  In addition to her many years in the industry, she also spent three years in Paris with her husband and became the mother of two great little people.  It was Havas that enticed her back to the world of advertising and communications upon her return to the US.

Since then, Kersten has been a leader at Havas Worldwide New York for almost 6 years. In addition to management responsibilities, she stewards the highly acclaimed Dos Equis campaign; led the agency team in winning Dreamwork's and Technicolor's new venture called  M-GO; and maintains executive leadership  on the global powerhouse Reckitt Benckiser in the US.

"What a surprising and delightful honor to be acknowledged among so many talented and exceptional women," said Rivas.  "The truth, that I'm sure many have said before me, is that I am but a part of a much bigger puzzle.  This award is evidence that my life is well surrounded - both at home, and at work, and everywhere in between."

"Kersten is a jack of all trades and a master of most, she's essential to our talent management, new business, and client relations," said Matt Ryan, Co Chairman Havas Worldwide New York, President Global Brands Havas Worldwide.  "At Havas Worldwide NY, Kersten is a mentor and manager.  At home, she's an Advertising Working Mother of the Year.  Kersten is proof positive that great parenting skills translate into great professional skills."

"We are so proud of Kersten. She is a wonderful role model for women in advertising, proving you can have a successful career and a fulfilling family life," added Joan Sheridan LaBarge, Vice President/Group Publisher of Working Mother Media.
