Previously, Neilson spent time as a journalist, writer and as a producer for Worldwide Television London and the BBC, worked at Saatchi & Saatchi, and handled crisis communications for the Eurovision Song Contest and public affairs communications around the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra WW1 Concert.

Ondine Whittington, managing director at Virgo, said: “We are thrilled to have Sue on board as her broad expertise and experience will be invaluable to our clients. The Virgo Communications offering has evolved rapidly over the last few years to support our clients through what is often a challenging health communications landscape.”

She added: “Fundamentally this is about offering a much more integrated approach that focuses on creating strategies that support our clients’ assets from the pipeline to the patient at a product, portfolio and corporate level. In a world where companies are under more scrutiny than ever before, creating congruence between the way a company behaves and the way it communicates at every level of the organisation is vital.”

Neilen commented:”Virgo has a mighty reputation as an agency that puts people at its heart, whether they be clients, patients or employees. I’m looking forward to developing the diverse work of the Comms division, helping our clients build their corporate and employer reputations whilst navigating industry and business challenges. We will continue to push our clients to be bold, demonstrating the value of creative multi-format communications both externally and internally.”

In addition Francesca Morley, senior account manager at Virgo, has returned from maternity leave to work across some of the health communications consultancy’s global and UK accounts.
