Roll Call: Edelman, Weber Shandwick, MRM, and More

Kym White has been named global chair of Edelman‘s health practice, reporting to Alan VanderMolen, president and CEO of global practices and diversified insights businesses.  White joined the firm last year after 16 years with Ogilvy PR.

She steps into a role vacated by Nancy Turett, who has been head of the health practice for about 20 years. Turett is now the chief strategist of health and society, a role that will focus on senior client relationships and business development. She’s been with the firm for 23 years.

And taking White’s position as global vice chair of the health practice is Susan Isenberg, previously the MD of brand and product marketing for the health and consumer groups in New York. She’ll also serve as chair of the health practice for the Americas working closely with White. She’s been with the firm for 18 years.

According to a statement from VanderMolen, the health practice has set a focus on diversification and “related societal issues.” That press release goes on to say that the Edelman health practice has 500 staffers around the world and is responsible for about 16 percent of global revenue.

Paul Andrew has been promoted to EVP at Weber Shandwick in the global corporate and image management practice working out of the Boston office. He will focus on messaging, crisis communication, and corporate comms. He has 10 years of experience, serving as special adviser to Tony Blair’s administration.
