LONDON, UK, 17 June 2015 – Specialist healthcare communications agency GCI Health has promoted Claire Martin to Associate Director and Laura Starr to Associate Director and Head of Creative, bolstering the strength of the agency’s London leadership team.  

Claire will take on further agency management responsibilities, including people development and oversight of financial processes, as well as be responsible for continued European and UK health and wellness new business growth.  

The newly created role of Head of Creative, recognising the strategic value of dedicated creative expertise, sees Laura provide input across the agency’s accounts with a specific focus on embedding processes that champion industry leading innovation.  

“Claire and Laura are exceptional senior leaders who have contributed a significant amount to the ongoing vision and growth of GCI Health locally and globally, clearly inspiring and motivating the team as they go,” said Rikki Jones, Director of the GCI Health London team.  

“With these promotions Claire and Laura will more formally lead to their strengths in response to market needs and opportunities, increasing the value offered to our client partners.”
