Grant Fisher has joined firstlight as associate director, and Kristen Barrett has joined as account director.

Fisher joins from Ruder Finn, where he was associate director, developing and delivering global communications programmes.

Barrett joins from Aurora Healthcare Communications and, prior to that, Atlantis Healthcare, where she focused on patient advocacy and media relations.

Pat Pearson, managing director of healthcare at firstlight, said: “As we grow it is important we continue to offer our clients the service that they have come to expect. We believe good communications has the power to change lives for the better, and we work with our clients to ensure they can unlock the potential of their products and services.”

Fisher added: “This is a very exciting time to be joining firstlight as we look to become a medium sized healthcare practice, while venturing out into new areas of work. We will do this by continuing to hold the same values that ultimately led to the creation of the firstlight healthcare team in 2011.”
