Pegasus, an Ashfield company, part of UDG Healthcare plc, has grown its Pharma & Life Sciences division with the appointment of six new members of staff to strengthen its team. This is in addition to five promotions across the team, three of which are within the senior team.

Harriet Middleton joins the company as Senior Account Director from HAVAS Just, where she worked across a range of Healthcare Communications and Public Relations programmes for UK and Global clients. Harriet has a strong background in healthcare public affairs, and significant experience in stakeholder relations, policy and patient advocacy.

Also bolstering the Pegasus pharma team is Account Manager Emily Berrington who joins from Ashfield Healthcare Communications sister agency Zoetic Science.

Additional new starters include: Senior Account Executive, Jack Newton from Havas Health; Kate Gerrard, Account Executive, former communications coordinator from Lighthouse Arts; Junior Account Executive, Francesca McDaniel from Bell Pottinger; and Biology Graduate Emma Fieldhouse as Junior Account Executive.

Jo Spadaccino, Director and Head of Pharma & Life Sciences at Pegasus, commented: “It’s been another year of growth for the business and we’ve seen a large proportion of that growth coming from the Pharma & Life Sciences sector. We warmly welcome the new members to our team and the collective skills they bring."

The expansion to our Macclesfield office last spring and our flexible working approach has supported our expansion and enabled us to attract a wide range of fantastic talent from right across the UK.”  

The team has also been boosted with several internal promotions. Kesha Tansey, Yasmin Ghariani and Megan Hollingdale have all been promoted to Senior Account Director, strengthening Pegasus’ senior team.  In addition, further recent promotions include Trystan George to Account Manager and Billy Johnson to Senior Account Executive.

Jo Spadaccino continues, “Our success is dependent on our people and their passion to deliver against our mission to inspire healthy decisions. We congratulate Kesha, Yasmin, Megan, Trystan and Billy on their well-deserved promotions.”
