Following the promotion of Gloria Gibbons to global CEO, Ogilvy Healthworld in the UK has restructured its senior management team.
Long-standing Ogilvy HealthWorld PR boss Matt de Gruchy (below) moves to the newly created role of client service director for the UK group. His new role will include advising clients across the entire range of disciplines at OHW, including PR, advertising, medical education and digital.
‘The creation of a CSD role in the UK group is an important development,” says Matt. “It recognises the increasing importance we see in managing the relationship with, and service delivery for, our key client base, while increasing the integration of brand comms strategies through all our disciplines.”
Matt’s successor as MD of OHW PR is Antonia Betts. She was previously director of operations for the company for three years.
In addition, current OHW group UK CEO Emma Sergeant becomes global client leader. Emma will be replaced by Lois Hall as the new UK CEO. Lois is another long-standing employee of the UK group, having previously held senior positions across all of the key OHW practices, and most recently establishing and leading a new brand consultancy team within the group.
Other new joiners include Liz Gofton, who returns to OgilvyHealthPR as an associate director after time in Australia working in a government health role. Satinder Phull has also returned to the agency as a senior account manager.
