Healthcare: Ex-Pfizer chief in Four Gritti move

Former Pfizer associate director of corporate and public affairs Roy Sutherwood has resurfaced in an 'advisory board' role at Four Gritti Healthcare.

Sutherwood worked for Pfizer from July 2003 until around November last year and was previously at Pharmacia, where he was public affairs director.

He has also formerly worked in the Department of Health's PR team. His new role is part-time and he continues to work on non-Four projects.

It has also emerged this week that former GJW chairman Nigel Clarke, a public affairs veteran, is also working with Four Gritti Healthcare in a part-time advisory role similar to Sutherwood's.

Four Gritti Healthcare launched in March and is run by former Avenue HKM chief executive Joanna Marchant. It is part of the broader Four Gritti Communications group.

Clarke is working with clients including AstraZeneca (on a global training contract) and Bupa (for strategic advice).

The agency has four other staff who also work for clients in other parts of the Four Gritti group.

Clarke continues to hold a director role with marcoms management consultancy Madsen Gornall Ashe (MGA), a position he took up in 2003 (PRWeek, 11 September 2003).
