Pfizer's Andrew Thomas has moved agency-side to take up the role of head of international at London-based healthcare agency Red Door Communications.
Prior to joining the Creston Health Group agency he served at Pfizer as strategic communications lead for primary care medicines across Europe and Canada.
“My time at Pfizer,” Thomas said, “required me to work across complex organisational structures and to understand what works, what doesn't and, most importantly, why that was the case.
“Success in that role was ultimately predicated on an ability to build, maintain and cultivate effective relationships based on trust and shared ownership with internal and external stakeholders alike.
“I believe those skills mean I will be able to make a real contribution to the Red Door Communications team and help develop their existing international offering still further”.
Thomas spent six years at Pfizer and prior to serving at the pharma company he worked at comms agencies Lowe Fusion and then Cohn and Wolfe.
Commenting on the appointment, Catherine Warne, head of Creston Health Group, said: “I have known Andrew for many years as a competitor and then a client. He is great fun, hugely well liked and respected in our industry and a proven influencer at a senior level.
“We are very excited that he is joining us and believe he is the ideal person to drive our international business."
