Turett Leaving Edelman Health To Start Her Own Business

Edelman vet Nancy Turett is stepping down from her position as chief strategist of the Health and Society group to launch her own consultancy and serve as a part-time senior advisor for Zeno Group. She’s been with the firm for 23 years and was the founder of Edelman’s global health practice in 2000.

During the course of her career with the firm, she’s worked in London, Paris, and New York; led the health group in New York; helped with the company rebrand in 2002; and was a chairperson for Canada and Latin America. More recently, Turett hosted a health event at the Edelman New York HQ in March tied to the firm’s most recent Health Barometer. (We tweeted about it. Be sure to follow us!)

Kym White took on the role of global chair of the health division back in March. She had previously been with Ogilvy PR for 16 years.
