Mike Morgan, chief executive, Red Consultancy, said: “Avril brings deep experience as a proven leader with a reputation for delivering strategic creative solutions.”

Lee previously worked as deputy global healthcare practice chair at Burson Marstellar, managing director, health UK & EMEA at MSLGROUP and CEO of Ketchum UK. Prior to joining Red, she was seconded to Vertex Pharmaceuticals as director of communication for the North region, where she was responsible for UK, Ireland and Nordics.

As part of her past experience, Lee has led award-winning global and UK campaigns – most recently winning last year’s Communiqué Award for Excellence in Corporate Social Responsiblity for work with Merck’s in-neglected tropical diseases.

“I’m excited to join Red Health which has a fantastic reputation for health campaigns with creative flair. The work is rooted in insight and strategic thinking, and combines the best in social, influencer and media. Moving forward we’ll be building on our international work alongside our UK assignments, bringing smart, creative integrated comms to our clients,” Lee commented.

Red is part of Huntsworth plc, an international healthcare and communications group with a primary focus on health, providing marketing and medical communications services to healthcare clients across the globe.

Red Health managing director Rebecca Fergusson is currently on maternity leave.
