FleishmanHillard London has added two directors to its healthcare leadership team: Robert Hanvik and Alison Wright have joined the agency to work on existing client accounts and support continued expansion.

They will both have client relationship manager responsibilities for some of FH’s largest clients.

Mr Hanvik has previously worked at FleishmanHillard, heading up its Minneapolis office, and is returning to the firm after several years working in in-house roles including head of global communications for Smith Medical, and head of global public relations for Medtronic.

Ms Wright joins having previously worked in-house as director of European corporate communications at Vertex Pharmaceuticals and as head of oncology affairs and communications Europe for Novartis.

She also has an extensive agency career as a senior consultant for Chandler Chicco and Cohn & Wolfe.

Both Mr Hanvik and Ms Wright will sit in FleishmanHillard’s London Healthcare Department alongside the three existing directors.
