In the UK, brand engagement and communications company Hall & Partners has announced a series of promotions in its specialist Health division, including Lee Gazey to Managing Partner.
Also promoted are Emily Helm to Research Director, Sian Lewis to Account Manager and Chris Gibson and Kat Gridley to Account Executive. The agency cites the ‘growing needs of its health and pharmaceutical clients worldwide’ as the main reason for the moves.
Gazey will take charge of the agency’s London-based health team, responsible for servicing global clients. He will continue to report to Abigail Stuart, Global Head of Hall & Partners Health. Prior to joining the company in 2011 he was Commercial Development Director at Insight Research Group and before that he was Business Director, Pharmaceutical at Holden Pearmain.
Helm, who joins the UK Management team, has been with the company since 2008 and was previously a Research Director at Synovate Health. Lewis has recently returned from a secondment as a Global Market Insight Manager at GlaxoSmithKline Biologicals in Brussels. Gibson joined the company from a career in banking which included stints at Barclays, NatWest and HSBC, while Gridley joined as a graduate.
Stuart says of Gazey’s promotion: ‘Lee has a wealth of experience in the healthcare sector and a track record of developing and commercialising innovative research approaches. In the relatively short time he’s been with Hall & Partners Health, he has made an impressive impact. Lee’s energy and drive has already led to substantial global client wins, and has built further momentum behind our digital expansion.’
Of the others, she adds: ‘These promotions represent the outstanding talent we have fostered within the agency. It’s been an exciting year for us, and we’re looking forward to continued growth in 2012.’
Hall & Partners has offices in Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, Seattle, London, Melbourne, Shanghai, Singapore and Sydney and is part of the Diversified Agency Service, a division of Omnicom Group Inc.
