The healthcare agency has named Sophie Asker as managing director, Singapore and Dan Blomfield as managing director, medical communications, APAC. Asker joins with 15 years of health communications experience, predominately from Syneos Health in the UK, where she was deputy managing director of public relations. She will lead GCI Health's Singapore based operations, including several local and regional client relationships.
Blomfield, meanwhile, is a medical communications and education leader, and moves from his previous role of managing director, Singapore at GCI Health to take on a regionally focused remit to further grow the agency's medical communications speciality offer.
"The addition of Sophie's Singapore leadership and expansion of Dan's remit is a significant milestone for us in APAC as we look ahead to 2021 and how we further support our client partners in the new normal," said Rikki Jones, regional managing director, APAC. Jones recently took on an expanded role as MD of BCW in Singapore.
Earlier this year, GCI Health APAC expanded its offerings, extending beyond health PR and policy to also provide medical communications and education expertise.
