Smiddy said it was an “exciting time” to join Porter Novelli.

“The team has recently expanded its women's health and respiratory portfolio and I am looking forward to further growing the team and client base,” she said.

“My previous health care practice in Australia remains the most awarded team within the agency, and I expect to mirror that success at Porter Novelli.”
