GSK’s Gibb joins Virgo on Zoton job

Former GlaxoSmithKline external affairs manager Emma Gibb has joined independent healthcare specialist Virgo Health PR to work on its programmes for Wyeth’s heartburn and indigestion brand Zoton.

Gibb, who joined last week in the role of account director, was previously responsible for the media, policy and political programmes for the GSK diabetes portfolio in the UK. Prior to GSK she worked in Burson-Marsteller’s corporate practice.

Virgo has also appointed Tina Edwards as an account manager. Edwards, who formerly held the same role at Santé Communications, is working on accounts such as Aventis’s rheumatoid arthritis treatment Arava.

A GSK spokeswoman said a recruitment process was under way to replace Gibb.

Launched less than a year ago, Virgo Health has grown to 15 staff.
