WCG expands London office

WCG has made four new senior level hires in its London office to expand its team to 15

WCG has made four new senior level hires in its London office to expand its team to 15. The firm recently expanded its London office space to accommodate this growth.

The WCG team is joined by:
• Danielle Whitney, director: with over a decade of experience in award-winning US and global communications campaigns driven from both the agency and client side; her area of expertise is oncology and she was previously recognised by PR Week as one of the top 29 PR professionals under 29
• Manuel Field, director: with 10 years' medical communications experience across medical education and PR; he joined WCG to build its medical communications offering along with fellow director, Zoe Healey
• Sabrina Gomersall, director: with over eight years of experience in integrated healthcare PR communications; she brings both global and local campaign experience, working in a number of disease areas ranging from neurology, transplantation and women's health
• Neha Wadhwa, manager: with more than five years' communications experience across the US and Europe with a specialisation in health policy and market access communications; her areas of expertise include cardiovascular, respiratory and rare diseases.

Global practice leader Gail Cohen, who has managed global communications campaigns for Fortune 500 companies for over 20 years, joined WCG last year to build and lead a cohesive global practice across all geographies. The agency now serves the international communications needs of many multi-national companies, including Pfizer, Boston Scientific, Dendreon, Genomic Health and ViroPharma.

Cohen said: "WCG has made significant investments to build our international presence and capabilities. We have particular depth in medical communications, market access, PR and advocacy, creative and digital services, and social media analytics and engagement.

"We continue to hire top talent to deliver the integrated 'next practices' approach our clients are increasingly requesting and have come to expect from us. Our London-based team has the experience to provide both relevant strategic counsel and reliable execution to help our clients succeed in the global marketplace."

WCG was recently named communications partner for the Stent for Life Initiative (SFL) to work with its steering committee to create and implement campaigns for this significant European disease awareness and education initiative in 10 countries.

SFL serves as a platform for healthcare professionals, government representatives, industry partners, patient groups and patients to ensure the timely delivery of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) treatment so that the majority of heart attack patients have equal access to this life-saving indication.
