NEW YORK, June 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- S&H Group, one of the leading global healthcare communication networks, is pleased to announce that Chris Duffey, Sharon Hayes, and Chris Watson have been selected from among 500 nominees as 2016 PM360 ELITE Award winners in the categories of digital crusader, master educator, and creative director, respectively.
Chris Duffey, EVP, Creative Director, Global Director of Creative Technology at Sudler, is an award-winning, creative, well-regarded industry commentator and mobile & wearable technologist. "Crusader" is a fitting title for someone like Chris, who relentlessly pursues great work in uncharted territory. Awarded the title of Digital Crusader, Chris advances digital channel applications and platforms that transform the market. He is also a juror at the 2016 Cannes Lions Health Festival.
"Chris believes in his work and stands behind it. He explores new territory, keeps his eye on the goal, and figures out how to get there while maintaining a collaborative environment and mindset," said Rob Rogers, Co-CEO the Americas.
Sharon Hayes, SVP Imprint Science, is a complex thinker and true visionary. She is able to look at a complex issue, especially if scientific, and distill it into a simple communication that is clear, concise, and easy to digest. Awarded the title of Master Educator, Sharon revolutionizes the way patients and HCPs learn and absorb information.
"Creativity is at her core. Although she is a medical director by training, her artistic side lends itself to creating beautiful visuals that make even complex concepts easy to understand. Teacher, creator, visionary are terms you'd not expect to find in the world of high-science medical education, but that's exactly what you have in Sharon," stated Louisa Holland, Co-CEO the Americas.
Chris Watson, EVP Group Creative Director at Sentrix HealthcareCommunications, a division of S&H, received the Creative Director award based on his daring, creative, and jealousy-inducing campaigns. Chris is anything but typical, and never content to follow what's been done before, always crafting new approaches. Whether he's leading brainstorming sessions or mentoring, Chris encourages participation from everyone.
"Having racked up caseloads of trophies in his career, Chris's creative teams know that he is a staunch supporter of the highest-quality creative work, and he is unwilling to sacrifice high-caliber thinking and execution. He fights for great ideas and for his people, while constantly experimenting with new approaches to generating great, collaborative creative," said Rob Rogers, Co-CEO the Americas.
