MHP Communications has hired Timothy Goodman and Stephanie Snow as directors in its health division.
Goodman spent 14 years with major pharma company Pfizer in a variety of headquarters and in-market roles, including speechwriter to the chairman and CEO, assistant director of global policy and corporate affairs director for Pfizer Chile.
Snow has also worked for Pfizer in the UK, and globally at British pharma company GSK. Her agency experience includes Hill + Knowlton, Ketchum and, more recently, Munro & Forster, where she was head of the healthcare practice.
In her career, she has advised around disease awareness campaigns, regulatory milestones, market access programmes and crisis preparedness. Overall, Snow has more than 20 years of experience in pharma and healthcare communications.
Goodman has 18 years of experience in pharmaceutical communications and policy advocacy, both in consultancy and in-house.
Rachel Rowson, head of MHP Health, said: “The critical issues in healthcare communications are multi-faceted, and the experience and expertise both Tim and Stephanie bring will enhance what we can offer to clients globally and by using PR and the media.
“There is an increasing expectation among clients for advisors who are both specialists, but can also seamlessly blend all of their communication needs. Tim and Stephanie will help us to deliver this.”
MHP’s health team has this year won two, as of yet undisclosed, UK pharmaceutical PR briefs.
