Knutsford’s Fishawack Group makes eighth acquisition with Blue Latitude

Blue Latitude Health

Knutsford-based Fishawack Group, a healthcare communications specialist, has acquired creative consultancy Blue Latitude Health.

The move will see Fishawack marry its medical communications strategy with the creative vision of Blue Latitude, which has offices in London and New York and develops healthcare solutions for pharma and biotech clients.

This is the third acquisition for Fishawack in just over a year and its eighth in total.

Chief executive officer Oliver Dennis said: “In 2016, we set out our vision to form a major new force in the global creative agency space that would make us as strong in the creative arena as we already are in medical communications.

“With three acquisitions in this space in the last 16 months, I think we’ve firmly announced our intention to achieve this goal. We were actively looking for a consultancy that could bring strategic and customer experience expertise to our portfolio and Blue Latitude Health fits perfectly.”

Fred Bassett, Head of Strategy and Co-founder of Blue Latitude Health, added: “We are thrilled to join an organisation with the global scale and extended services in medical and scientific communications that Fishawack offers.

“Our strategic and commercial focus will complement Fishawack’s scientific and medical foundations and allow us to expand our reach, particularly in the US, while deepening our client relationships.”

Fishawack Group’s eight strategic acquisitions include Carling Communications and Healthcircle.
