GCI HEALTH EXPANDS LONDON TEAM WITH AN ADDITIONAL THREE HIRES  

LONDON, UK, 3 February 2014 – Specialist healthcare communications agency GCI Health has bolstered its fast growing London team with an additional three hires, welcoming Senior Account Director Claire Woods, Account Director Laura Starr and Account Manager Chris Bath.  

Claire Woods joins GCI Health from Ketchum, having previously worked for Red Door Communications and as the Communications Manager for Cancer at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust.   Laura Starr moves from Hill & Knowlton Strategies, having started her career at Virgo Health, and Chris Bath joins from Red Door Communications.  

“Each hire is an exceptional talent, recruited not only for their outstanding client service and experience but also their obvious entrepreneurial spirit,” said Rikki Jones, Director of the GCI Health London team. “The appointments have been made possible via exceptional organic growth and all of our new joiners will be integral to GCI Health’s further expansion.”  

GCI Health’s new London employees will work with global, European and UK clients across four primary service areas: life sciences, consumer health, market access communications and strategic consulting.  

“Our London office, as GCI Health’s European hub, has been growing significantly and we are thrilled to welcome these new team members,” said Wendy Lund, CEO. “The expanding local expertise we have on both sides of the Atlantic, supported by our broader global network, allows us to continuously look at how we can meet our clients’ evolving needs across geographies.”
