I thoroughly enjoyed my previous time with Onyx Health, and I’m thrilled to be back as part of the senior management team overseeing the strategic direction of client accounts. The agency’s come a long way in the short time I’ve been away. It’s become firmly embedded in the North East and national healthcare communications landscape and has almost doubled in size”.
Managing director Karen Winterhalter added “It feels just like old times having Alex back in the office. Alex’s experience of working on national and international accounts will play a pivotal role in driving the business forward over the coming year. This is particularly important to help our clients navigate their way through the global COVID-19 public health crisis. We’re positive about the future and will be focusing using our healthcare communications expertise to make a difference during these uncertain times.”
