The outstanding personal achievements of Kate Tillett, MSD UK's executive director of external affairs, were recognised at last night's Communiqué Awards 2014.  

The London ceremony saw her pick up the Healthcare Communiquétor award, which recognises those who excel at a very senior level in healthcare communications.  

Open to industry or healthcare consultancy professionals, Tillett beat a distinguished lineup to take home the Healthcare Communiquétor award.  

Shortlisted alongside Tillett as finalists were AbbVie's Gwenan White, AstraZeneca's Amie Baker, Huntsworth Health's Annabelle Sandeman, Munro & Forster Communications' Brian Gunson and Publicis Life Brands Resolute's Anna Korving.

Tillett has spent more than 22 years at MSD, as Merck & Co's operations are known outside the US, and is recognised as a thought leader in the UK pharmaceutical industry.  

She has held a number of representational and leadership posts, including serving as an elected member of the ABPI's Board of Management, and has been a critical contributor to industry negotiations with government on the Pharmaceutical Price Regulation Scheme (PPRS) since 1992.  

For a number of years she has also played a leading role in the industry's approach to collaborative engagement with patient groups and other key stakeholders.   

She has also represented the pharmaceutical industry on the NICE Partners Council; the Department of Health's Medicines Partnership Task Force and the Ask About Medicines Advisory Board.  

Furthermore she initiated and served on the Concordance Working Group at the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain; was a member of the Future Patient Advisory Group at the IPPR and has advised the General Medical Council.  

Prior to joining MSD, Kate worked agency-side at Good Relations and ran her own consultancy business for eight years.  

The Communiqué Awards are run by PMLiVE publishers PMGroup and the awards ceremony took place at London's Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, on July 3, 2014.
