Commenting on the set-up of the new agency Hunt said: “We recognised very early on that medical education is a very competitive arena and that if we couldn't offer something new we shouldn't enter it. Nick's clinical perspective coupled with his industry experience, our digital pedigree and the enthusiasm of the team we have recruited convince us that Havas Lynx Medical will deliver a step change in medical education.”
