Fuel gives health post to Hodgson

Consumer PR agency Fuel PR has hired a former Pfizer Consumer Healthcare group marketing manager to head its health and beauty arm.

Barbara Hodgson takes up the newly created role of associate director, heading a nine-strong team whose clients include Pfizer smoking-cessation brand Nicorette and vitamins and minerals company Seven Seas.

Hodgson left Pfizer, where she was group marketing manager for its oral care division, working for brands such as Listerine mouthwash, last month.

She was formerly category manager (Calpol and personal care) at Pfizer, and has worked for HJ Heinz promoting Farley’s baby food.

Recent staff exits from Fuel’s health and beauty team include account directors Liz Jones, who has joined Lexis PR as head of healthcare (PRWeek, 19 March), and Vicky Amos, who joined Weber Shandwick’s UK healthcare team in February.
