As head of pharmaceutical communications, Jaquest will be responsible for driving the growth of the agency's pharma client portfolio.

Reporting to group managing director, Lucie Harper, Jaquest joins the agency following nine years with Chandler Chicco Agency (CCA), where she was a senior client lead and member of the London leadership team.

So it's great to be joining a team that can offer truly integrated solutions to meet those challenges and engage with audiences."
