Summary of work

Chris McPherson

After first joining MHP as a teenager on work experience in 2009, Chris knew that creating change in healthcare was what he wanted to be known for. Since then, he has been on quite a journey. Tested right from the start, he has learnt that passion, curiosity and excellent fundamentals can deliver any brief, regardless of the communications challenge or geography. This mindset has allowed Chris to effectively advise clients around the world and at the most senior levels.

His work across the agency’s biggest accounts are a testament to this, demonstrating the tangible value that effective policy and advocacy strategies can bring to patient outcomes, industry reputation and business objectives in the UK, Asia and worldwide.

Unfazed by new challenges, Chris has been at the heart of a transformation at MHP in the past two years. Having achieved four promotions, from Account Executive to Account Director, in less than four years, his example and commitment to internal development has driven those around him to a higher standard. He is viewed throughout the organisation as an emerging leader, pivotal to continued growth and expansion.

Judges' comments

Chris was the top choice from the outset, he smashed it! He demonstrated an unparalleled level of thought and maturity from his team to the business. His vision and purpose are very clear and admirable, and the value he brings to his business is evident. He’s a great representative for the industry and a fantastic ambassador.
