PN appoints trio to boost UK team

Porter Novelli has bolstered its UK healthcare practice with three appointments, including Mitali Rijan who has moved from the agency’s Singapore office to take a UK consultant role.

Rijan started at PN’s London office this month and is working on accounts such as Pfizer’s and Boehringer Ingelheim’s co-marketed chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) brand Spiriva, as well as for Sanofi-Aventis in the oncology arena.

Rijan has been at PN for around a year and formerly worked at Singapore’s National Kidney Foundation.

The agency has also appointed Jennie Watson, formerly a member of GlaxoSmithKline’s field salesforce, as an account executive, and Alexandra Wilmshurst as a trainee account executive.

The trio of hires report to UK healthcare director Jo Fensome.
