Laura Chambers has been promoted to a director at Just Health PR and will join the UK agency's newly-formed leadership team.
She was the agency's first hire in 2006, joining as a consultant, and one of her key tasks in her new role will be to lead and grow the agency's UK account portfolio, which accounts for 40 per cent of its overall fee income.
“I'm delighted to be joining the senior leadership team. It has been a fantastic six years and I'm looking forward to working with the other directors and MDs to shape the agency's offering,” Chambers said.
“Our UK clients in particular are facing some of the greatest market access challenges the pharmaceutical industry has ever seen, so it is vital that we offer them informed counsel and fresh thinking to address these.”
Also on the agency's new leadership team will be Chamber's fellow directors Tamsin Tierney and Julia Kirby, finance director Mary Maher and HR director Alex Biggs.
They will work alongside managing directors and co-founders Emma Crozier and Jennie Talman to run Just Health PR's integrated health communications business at an operational level.
The team will also work closely with Crozier and Talman to shape and grow the agency's offer, which was recently expanded to include Just Political Relations.
