Westminster Advisers this week welcomes on board a new Account Director and Associate Director to further strengthen its health practice. The new appointments come on the back of several high-profile client wins for Westminster Advisers, as well as rapid growth in 2015 and an expanding health client list this year.
Associate Director Sarah Gullo was previously communications adviser at Verve Communications, and has over a decade’s experience in political, campaigning and communications advisory roles in Australia and the UK. Gullo has delivered the communications around an A&E closure in London, and advised on CSU mergers and other high profile NHS campaigns and consultations. In the past she ran campaigns in health and social services and led media relations for a reform agenda on behalf of the Queensland Government.
Account Director Emily Cameron joins WA Health from Life Sciences Minister George Freeman’s Parliamentary Office where she was chief of staff and communications lead, honing her political credentials. Cameron previously worked at Whizz-Kidz in public affairs and campaigns and built up her policy expertise at the Health Foundation. She started her career at Hanover Communications, working with a range of high-profile pharmaceutical and NHS clients.
Announcing the new hires, Jenny Ousbey, Head of Health, said: “With the addition of Emily and Sarah I believe we can offer clients and prospective clients an industry-leading team. Our strength at WA Health is a knowledge base that spans pharma, medical devices, NHS, independent health and social care, the third sector and financial sectors across all communications disciplines. I look forward to working with Emily, Sarah and the rest of the team to continue our successes of 2016 so that we continue to deliver excellence for clients.”
Dominic Church, Managing Director at Westminster Advisers, said: “I’m delighted to welcome Emily and Sarah to Westminster Advisers. We’re already proud of our health offer, and these hires further highlight our capability and capacity to deliver across the spectrum in healthcare communications, with a real strength in depth of knowledge and experience across the consultancy team.”
