Switzerland-based inVentiv Health Communications/Europe (iHCE), an inVentiv Health company, is opening its new operational headquarters in London to serve as a hub for all European offices and support the rapid growth of the company’s consolidated communications business.
Since its creation in August 2011, iHCE has focused on building a “super agency” governed by a single management philosophy that facilitates true collaboration between inVentiv’s best-in-class advertising, public relations, public policy, market access, medical education, marketing, branding and digital services. The new operation hub will enable iHCE to remove barriers between disciplines to create teams that view problems from multiple perspectives and then draw upon the needed expertise to deliver programs that quickly achieve their goals.
“From deep collaboration emerge solutions that are unique in the healthcare industry,” said Bob Chandler, head of iHCE and senior vice president of marketing and communications of inVentiv Health. “Our company structure allows us to draw upon a wealth of talent and deep insight across many disciplines, while our new European headquarters helps us better serve our clients and facilitate growth throughout Europe. This is a very exciting time.”
iHCE’s leadership team also announced the appointment of Nick Bartlett, Damon Caiazza and Peter Comber to senior management roles. Bartlett will lead iHCE’s digital and social media business, Caiazza will head advertising and Comber will oversee the company’s creative services.
“We are committed to providing clients with a multidisciplinary approach that taps the expertise of all healthcare marketing disciplines, and today’s appointments reinforce this commitment,” said Fiona Hall, senior managing director of iHCE. “As part of our senior management team, Nick, Damon and Peter will support our go-to-market strategy rooted in client demand for effective, actionable multidisciplinary services that reach target audiences with greater speed and relevance.
