NEW YORK: GCI Health has promoted Kim Sammons to market leader of its Atlanta office. Her predecessor, Valerie Lind, was named head of the agency's corporate health and medical technology sectors.
Sammons joined GCI Health late last year. She previously worked as VP at cause marketing agency For Momentum, where she oversaw corporate sponsor summits with the goal of creating and expanding partnerships between patient advocacy groups and for-profit organizations. Sammons also spent six years at Porter Novelli, where she worked as deputy director of the Omnicom firm's Atlanta office. She will report to GCI Health CEO Wendy Lund.
Lund said Sammons has “done an amazing job working with staff and clients and is well connected.”
Lind has worked at GCI Health since 2006. In the new role, she will oversee the development of the agency's thought leadership and client base in the corporate health and medical technology sectors while focusing on key Atlanta clients.
She will also report to Lund, who said it is a new position. “She has great experience with corporate healthcare as well as medical technology, which are skills not just sitting around,” Lund said.
Before joining GCI Health, she worked at Medtronic, where she held the role of senior PR manager.
