'Catherine joined us in 1995 to set up GCI Healthcare. Within a year she had recruited a team of A-class talent and had won six-figure business from seven major pharma companies.
'Over the next five years she grew the top line by 20 per cent every year and diversified into medical education. On the way she played an astute and vocal role on our UK board. In her spare time she founded the PRCA's healthcare group, which metamorphosed into the HCA when Catherine left GCI.
'I have rarely met anyone who was so clearly destined for entrepreneurial success. Her obsession with healthcare comms was, and is, total. She is a born leader. Today, one of our highest accolades is "she could be another Catherine".'
Catherine Warne is now MD of Red Door Communications.
