Newcastle-based healthcare marketing communications agency Onyx Health has welcomed Alex Gandhi back as Account Director as part of plans to steer the agency through the COVID-19 crisis.

Gandhi re-joins from international healthcare communication agency Open Health, where he was Senior Account Manager, and was previously Account Manager at Onyx Health.

He said: “It’s great to be back. I thoroughly enjoyed my previous time with Onyx Health, and I’m thrilled to be back as part of the senior management team overseeing the strategic direction of client accounts. 

“The agency’s come a long way in the short time I’ve been away. It’s become firmly embedded in the North East and national healthcare communications landscape and has almost doubled in size."

Managing Director Karen Winterhalter added: “It feels just like old times having Alex back in the office. Alex’s experience of working on national and international accounts will play a pivotal role in driving the business forward over the coming year. 

“This is particularly important to help our clients navigate their way through the global COVID-19 public health crisis.”

In the last year, Onyx Health has taken on six new members of staff and won three new clients in 2020.
