NEW YORK: Former Cohn & Wolfe EVP and healthcare practice MD, Lisa Talbot, has joined Marina Maher Communications and Rx Mosaic as MD, healthcare strategy and business development.
Talbot’s role, which is new to the Omnicom firm and its sister healthcare specialist agency, will entail "senior strategic counsel to existing clients while also focusing on organic and new business growth within the healthcare vertical," according to a company statement.
Before spending more than a decade at Cohn & Wolfe, Talbot was a VP at PR21, now Zeno Group, and a director of marketing and communications at pharma company Eurand, according to her LinkedIn profile. She was named to PRWeek's 40 Under 40 list in 2013.
Seven-year MMC executive Kelly Cacioppo is now MD, MMC Health & Well-Being and Michele Schimmel will remain MD of Rx Mosaic, working with Talbot, per the statement. All three report to the firm’s healthcare and consumer executive director, Diana Littman Paige.
The firm bought Rx Mosaic in June 2014 and later added to it eight staff and at least two clients, Roche Diagnostics and Teva Pharmaceuticals.
