Beach’s experience spans agency and in-house roles. In his new position, he will support pharma and med tech clients, strengthening Portland’s global product communications capability.

He said: “Portland stands out among consultancies both in the way it engages its staff and the quality of advice and work it provides its clients. These two are clearly linked and instrumental in the company’s success. I look forward to becoming an integral member of a uniquely talented Health team, and to helping realise its ambition to deliver the best work of our careers.”

Dr. Jane Brearley, partner and head of health at Portland, added: “I am delighted to welcome Daniel who expands the experience and skills we need to ensure we continue meeting and exceeding the expectations of current and future clients.

“Daniel complements the existing senior team expertise with extensive global communications experience and invaluable insights from his in-house and patient advocacy roles. As a science geek with a knack for engaging diverse stakeholders and delivering creative campaigns, Daniel is the perfect fit for our award winning team.”

Clarke’s background in the pharmaceutical industry includes advising major international companies on issues such as changes to the NHS and uptake of new medicines and market access strategies.
