NEW YORK, April 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Med Ad News, the leading pharmaceutical business and marketing publication, recognized Joshua Prince, president of The CDM Group, as their 2015 Industry Person of the Year. The award was announced at The Manny Awards, held on April 23, 2015 at Pier Sixty at Chelsea Piers in New York City. The annual event, attended by approximately 600 people, celebrates industry leadership and creative excellence in healthcare advertising and communications.
The honor recognizes Prince's business leadership and commitment to the healthcare communications industry. He was chosen based in part on the testimonials of current and former employees, agency peers, and industry clients who praised his leadership skills, infectious charisma, creative vision, boundless energy, extreme intelligence, and as the ultimate developer of professional colleagues.
Ed Wise, CEO of The CDM Group commented, "Josh, besides being an exceptional talent himself, is a talent factory. There are at least a dozen creative leaders across our industry who got their start and honed their craft with Josh's mentorship."
According to Med Ad News, "Josh possesses a rare ability to not only drive our industry forward, but also do it all in a way that leaves nothing but motivated and grateful people in his wake. Before becoming President of The CDM Group in 2013, he spent the bulk of his previous years as Creative Director. In that role, he had a direct hand in some of the most iconic work and notable brands in the industry, most notably, Viagra. More recently, Josh founded the groundbreaking partnership between The CDM Group and the consumer agency BBDO. The partnership, called HealthWork, draws on the deep scientific experience of The CDM Group, and the extraordinary consumer prowess of BBDO, to deliver completely integrated direct-to-consumer campaigns, including the highly awarded Tamiflu spot. Josh also worked across pharmaceutical companies in his leadership of the breakthrough campaign for PhRMA's "Partnership for Prescription Assistance" effort to help Americans with little or no insurance get their medicines."
