Highly Commended

Catherine Devaney

WE Communications


Summary of work

Catherine’s track record of delivering for clients, business acumen, strong leadership and commitment to the healthcare industry speaks for itself.

In the last 12 months she has taken a tech agency with just two UK health clients and it turned it into a respected consultancy making its mark on the healthcare industry. Catherine’s leadership at WE Communications has delivered revenue growth of over 200%, an impressive pitch success rate and attracted top talent in a difficult recruitment market.

Whilst focused on building health in the UK, Catherine’s abilities have been recognised elsewhere in the agency demonstrated by a promotion to Deputy Managing Director within a few months of joining and a global leadership role within the wider health team.

She has a reputation as a consultant who will be responsive to client needs, whilst pushing boundaries and defining best practice. Her style is calm in the face of issues and she has an ability to focus in on what is important in order to make decisions in fast-moving situations. Clients, industry peers, colleagues and direct reports all comment on Catherine’s positive, compassionate and collaborative leadership style and many of today’s industry leaders credit Catherine as ‘the person that has guided them to the consultant they are today’.

Judges' comments

Catherine’s move from a company where she worked for 16 years to a new environment was really brave and admirable, stepping far out of her comfort zone. It was fascinating that Catherine gained confidence and passion so quickly in her new role and it’s impressive to see what she has achieved there.
