Healthcare PR Execs Play Musical Chairs

PRNewser has received several announcements over the last few months pointing us to recently hired healthcare practice leads at large agencies.

PRWeek‘s Jaimy Lee noticed and reported on the trend as well.

“MS&L, Burson-Marsteller, and Hill & Knowlton have lost at least two of their top healthcare leaders in the last four months. Euro RSCG PR, Cohn & Wolfe, Ketchum, and Porter Novelli have also reported healthcare practice leadership changes since March 2009,” she wrote.

Here is a quick round-up of some of the more recent moves:

Wendy Lund will be CEO of Cohn & Wolfe’s GCI Health division, effective next Monday. She was EVP Global Business & Client Development at MS&L.

Anna Maria DeSalva, formerly worldwide director of healthcare for Hill & Knowlton, joined Pfizer as VP of worldwide communications in November. Dolly Judge, former VP of government relations for Pfizer, has joined H&K as SVP and director of healthcare policy.
