Axon Comms hires 

Canadian-based med comms firm Axon Communications has made five new additions to its London team as it looks to expand its global footprint.

Lucie Burns joins the agency's PR team as associate director, along with Karley Ura as programme manager and Samantha Treadwell as programme executive. Working across Axon's PR and med comms teams, Kate Peregrin, PhD, joins as medical writer, whilst Denis Bilotta, PhD, joins the med comms team as programme manager.

“It is such an exciting time for Axon, with the growth and success of the business reflected in our expanding team,” said Miranda Dini, managing partner for Axon London. “We are confident that the wealth of talent, expertise and fresh perspectives that our new team members bring will contribute to our continued achievements in 2015.”

Among the senior team, Lucie joins Axon from Edelman, London, bringing eight years of experience in creating and executing strategic healthcare communications programmes at global, regional and national levels, with a particular expertise in launching new products.

Kate joins Axon from Elements Communications and previously Zaicom Healthcare. She brings nearly a decade's experience to the Axon team, having moved into med comms in 2012 after eight years working in the field of cancer research and clinical trials.

Karley comes to London as part of Axon's internal transfer programme, moving from the firm's Toronto office, where she was involved in a number of PR campaigns.

Denis brings editorial and project management experience, in addition to his background as a scientist. Finally Samantha joins the Axon team after graduating from St Mary's University last year, having previously worked with Edelman, London.

Axon is part of National Public Relations, the largest PR consultancy in Canada, with offices in Victoria, Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec City and Halifax.
