Red Havas is growing its healthcare practice, Red Havas Health, with three new appointments, including long-time healthcare sector specialist, Nicole (Nic) Phillips.
Nicole has been named as Client Services Director, and brings over 25 years’ experience as a communication, reputation and engagement advisor specialising in healthcare and specialist medical services. She has held a mix of consulting and in-house roles, including 16 years leading the global public affairs and marketing team for ASX-listed Virtus Health.
Nicole is reporting to Sue Cook, Practice Head for Red Havas Health, reuniting the healthcare peers, who previously worked together for a decade. Sue said she is excited to be working with her former colleague again: "With Nic’s expertise, we will be looking to expand our remit in health technology and health services, whilst continuing our focus on our core sectors of pharmaceuticals and consumer health which have grown significantly since I joined Red Havas in late 2018.
"In addition, our patient advocacy work continues with a key ongoing partnership with the National Breast Cancer Foundation, a passion project for our agency as this cause touches so many of us.”
Nicole welcomed the opportunity to partner with Sue again to deliver integrated healthcare communications, fusing science and culture, for the agency’s growing health practice: "“The energy at Red Havas is infectious (pardon the pun) and the ability to deliver integrated communications strategies working with our Village colleagues across social, experiential, corporate and public affairs to communicate the human stories behind the science is an exciting prospect"
The other new faces in the team include Alice Cullam, who has been appointed Senior Account Manager. She has spent 12 years working across COVID-19, diabetes, heart disease, ophthalmology, oncology, and mental health projects locally and overseas.
Daisy Bartlett has joined the team as an Account Manager from Scotland, where she was awarded Chartered Institute of Public Relation’s 2021 Outstanding Young Communicator of the Year, and worked with clients including the Scottish Government’s Healthier portfolio and Worldwide Cancer Research.
