She will work closely with the agencys hubs in Singapore and Hong Kong to manage key international clients including Emirates, LG Electronics and Shangri-La Hotels.
Giedroyc will report directly to Havas Media International global chief executive Jorge Irizar, as well as Havas Media Group APAC boss Vishnu Mohan and Havas Media Group, Greater China, head Christophe Cases.
It represents a return to Havas for Giedroyc, who spent three years from 2005 to 2008 working at Havas Media predecessor MPG International.
She left the agency to join UM, where she spent over five years, before joining OMD in January 2014.

[Giedroyc] has the right experience and attitude for this role and I have no doubt that she will prove to be a great asset to the international team.
Giedroyc added: Joining Havas Media is like homecoming for me. I started my career with Havas Media International in London and am truly excited to be back.
Asia Pacific is a region that I was very keen to experience professionally and the groups entrepreneurial spirit and its integrated offering was a big attraction for me. I do hope to contribute to its success story in the region.
