The two companies, Haas & Health Partner PR and SanCom Creative Communication Solutions, become part of inVentiv Health immediately.

This will add a further 33 employees to the European operations of Chandler Chicco Companies, the number one consultancy in the 2011 PRWeek healthcare league table.

The two companies will also be part of inVentiv Health’s pan-European operation of advertising, public relations, public policy, market access, medical education, marketing, branding and digital companies.

In 2008, CCC acquired a 19.9 per cent interest in Haas & Health Partner and SanCom CCS. Under the terms of the new agreement, the companies now become wholly-owned subsidiaries.
       
Chandler Chicco Companies founder Bob Chandler said: ‘This is a significant step in our global growth plans.

‘After a decade of working closely with both firms, the terms of our new agreement enable us to bring unprecedented resources to the German marketplace for the benefit of our clients’ interests.’    

Both of the German companies will keep their brands and their existing management teams will also continue to lead the firms, reporting directly to Fiona Hall, MD of Chandler Chicco Companies Europe.
