WRG has brought in David Sawyer in a new healthcare communications director role.
He joins the Manchester agency from Complete HealthVizion, where he was head of commercial development and has previously held commercial roles at AstraZeneca, MSD and Servier.
The move comes as WRG “develops and expands” its presence in the pharmaceutical sector.
“I’m delighted to join WRG and I look forward to developing exciting and memorable communication strategies for our healthcare clients, in this rapidly expanding area of the business,” said Sawyer.
In the role, his focus will be on developing campaigns, thought leadership engagement programmes and comms strategies.
“Healthcare is a key area of growth for WRG as we continue to innovate for our existing clients, keeping step with the regulatory challenges and winning new business in this dynamic sector,” added Chris Gosling head of healthcare at WRG.
