Trio of Senior Hires For The Prime Medical Group

Global communications agency strengthens top team as part of worldwide growth

The Prime Medical Group’s expansion continues to go from strength to strength as it announces three new hires who will reinforce an already impressive senior line-up. The new additions are Karen Turner (VP, Client Services), Gauri Saal (Principal Medical Writer) and Peter Townsend (Legal Counsel). All three recruits will be based in The Prime Medical Group’s Knutsford office and work closely with the London, New York and San Francisco teams.

Karen Turner brings over 20 years’ medical communications experience. She has extensive leadership skills providing strategic and tactical direction to global and affiliate pharmaceutical and biotech operations as part of their medical affairs, medical communication and publication programmes. Karen will be providing divisional leadership across a number of key accounts delivered from our UK and US offices.

Gauri Saal MA (Economics), who specialises in health economics and market access, will join The Prime Medical Group’s health economics and outcomes research (HEOR) team. Gauri has a wealth of experience developing strategies on market access and reimbursement, conduct of HEOR, as well as developing HEOR communications targeted to a variety of stakeholders. This will supplement the overall business experience, providing pharmaceutical, device and diagnostic payer evidence strategy and generation in: clinical, real-world, patient-reported and economic outcomes; market access strategy and planning; and communications (value dossiers, manuscripts).

Peter Townsend BA (Hons), LLM, Solicitor, will join the senior team in the roles of Legal Counsel and Company Director, providing expertise developed over 30 years in commercial practice and as a Lecturer in Law at the University of Manchester.

Founder and CEO Graeme Peterson has welcomed all three into the business:
“We’re delighted to welcome Karen, Gauri and Peter to The Prime Medical Group and I’m very excited about the fantastic expertise they bring to what is already a very strong, industry-leading team. The Group has continued to grow in 2016 and both Karen and Gauri’s expertise will be utilised to support recent key new account wins, working with leading pharmaceutical companies.
