NEW YORK, Oct. 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Donna Murphy, Havas Health global CEO, has landed on the MM&M Health Influencer 50, at No. 27. Murphy—whose long tenure with Havas Health has been remarkable for the steady upward momentum the group has seen under her leadership—has had a stellar year at the helm of the quickly expanding network.
Over the past 18 months, Murphy has spearheaded a slew of strategic acquisitions that expanded Havas Health's footprint in important markets, beginning in June 2015, with the purchase of Just:: Health Communications. The London-based firm was renamed Havas Just:: and grew Havas Health's health and wellness PR capabilities in a competitive space. In fall of 2015, Havas Health launched xigxag, a consultancy that delivers precise strategies for biopharma and healthcare clients, and added med-ed agency Symbiotix to its roster. And in 2016, the agency announced a cutting-edge partnership with Vencore Health Analytics for its patient-finder technology.
"It is a great honor to be included on this year's MM&M Health Influencer 50," said Murphy. "But rather than taking this as a personal achievement, I see it as an accolade for the entire Havas Health group—our commitment to putting our clients at the center of everything we do is the key to the great levels of success we continue to attain year after year. I am lucky to work with such a dedicated group of professionals."
"Donna well deserves to be named to this prestigious list," added Yannick Bollore, CEO, Havas Group. "She is known throughout the industry as a leader who inspires her teams to give their all and as a health and wellness communications professional who has long recognized the value of finding the right solutions for every client."
