“This acquisition is a major step in Fishawack’s plan to build a global strategic creative agency that can work alongside our medical communications business,” explained Oliver Dennis, Chief Executive Officer of the Fishawack Group. “We also acquired US-based Carling Communications in July last year. Carling needed critical mass in Europe and Healthcircle needed a US partner. This is a great match and positions us to deliver integrated creative and medcomms solutions on a truly global scale. ”
Mike Taylor, Managing Director of Healthcircle added; “We’ve been on the lookout for a partner to support our growth in the US whilst also providing us access to scientific and strategic talent. Healthcircle and Fishawack have already collaborated extensively and we’ve known and worked with many of the Carling team over our years in the business .”
Gail Flockhart, Group Managing Director at Fishawack said; “All agencies are collections of people with different talents. What makes us different is the investment we make in establishing real chemistry between teams so that collaboration is fun and triggers new ideas. We’re still at a size where we can make this meaningful. ”
