Pegasus Crowned Health Consultancy of the Year at 2014 Sabre Emea Awards

Brighton consultancy adds top honour to its award wins

Last night Pegasus, the UK’s leading independent health communications consultancy, was crowned EMEA Health Consultancy of the Year 2014 at the prestigious SABRE Award ceremony in London.  

This high-profile award recognises excellence in health communications across Europe, the Middle East and Africa and superior achievement in branding, reputation and engagement. Selected as winner not only by peers in the health industry but also by leaders in the FMCG, corporate and financial sectors, the Brighton-based consultancy successfully beat stiff competition from Red Door, Virgo and First Light.

Paul Holmes, founder and CEO of The Holmes Report and judge of the SABRE EMEA Awards said of Pegasus; “Healthcare PR firms are being forced to look for new avenues of growth, and those looking to the consumer health space have found at least a couple of established competitors taking the lead.  Pegasus, based on the south coast of England and focused on ‘inspiring healthy decisions’, is probably the best of them, a
firm with an outstanding workplace culture and an impressive creative track record. The expansion of the firm’s digital and social media capabilities was another key factor in its success.”

Managing Director Lisa Bradley said; “This is an incredible achievement for us. We’re all delighted, not only because this acknowledges our established international capability but also because it recognises how we have evolved and expanded our services in what has been a challenging time for all in the health industry. We continue to deliver campaigns that span local, national and international markets; have created a network of global affiliate agencies across five continents; and now provide clients with a fully integrated communications offer through our digital, social and corporate services – all key to our thriving and successful business.”  

Pegasus also won an In2 Innovation SABRE Award for its ‘Slimewatch’ campaign on behalf of Bayer UK in partnership with Markettiers 4DC and the EMEA Sponsorship Gold SABRE Award for its work with Novo Nordisk on Team Novo Nordisk.
