Health Unlimited makes further senior team acquisitions

Hot on the heels of the appointment of Ann Bartling as PR Practice Lead, global health consultancy and communications agency Health Unlimited has bolstered its senior talent with the London-based appointments of Per Hedman as Director of Digital Engagement and Jamie Keenan as Associate Director, UK PR.

Bringing over 35 years’ experience in healthcare between them, these hires represent the commitment of the agency to securing talent that understands how to segment and personalise messaging to improve conversations and drive value-based conversions.

As a respected industry digital leader - both client and agency-side - Per will lead Health Unlimited’s global insights and engagement team, with a specific focus on developing digital solutions that deliver positive, ongoing customer experiences and brand engagement, and actions to improve health. In recognition of the commercial importance of this role, Per has been appointed to the agency’s global operating board to drive digital engagement strategies for the agency’s UK and US clients working regionally and internationally.

Bringing with him extensive agency and in-house communications experience across both big pharma and consumer health brands, Jamie joins Ann as part of Health Unlimited’s senior PR team. He will lead key client portfolios across the agency’s international and UK domestic work.

About these appointments, Tim Bird, Chief Executive Officer of Health Unlimited commented:

“We are delighted to have Per and Jamie join our global team of multidisciplinary specialists with the deep experience and expertise that our clients value and rely on for success. They bring with them a wealth of understanding of today’s challenging commercial, healthcare, public policy and patient advocacy environments; combined with the perspective and digital engagement capabilities to help our clients drive actions that achieve better outcomes and health experiences for patients”.

Per himself added:

“I’ve seen how much Health Unlimited has been at the forefront of many landmark developments working in partnership with organisations invested in solving the world’s most complex, and sometimes, controversial health conditions. I’m excited to be part of an international team that is so focused on the use of data to build lasting and valuable relationships with consumers and their networks – it’s smart comms with smart outcomes.”

Jamie himself added:

“I’m thrilled to be joining Health Unlimited. We are working on some really exciting programmes that leverage our in-house capabilities in content creation and strategic execution. The way we engage with audiences has evolved enormously over the past decade; while the fundamentals of sound communications remain, strong content has never been more critical. Health Unlimited is bringing clever thinking from brilliant minds to deliver work that changes lives.”
