Ciba's Gallagher takes Ferring role

LAUSANNE: Biopharma firm Ferring has poached Helen Gallagher, international media relations manager at Ciba Specialty Chemicals, to take the role of corporate comms manager.

Gallagher, who started at Ferring's offices in Lausanne, Switzerland, last week, joins after almost five years in the Basle-based Ciba job. She is working alongside corporate comms manager Michael George, the former Serono PR man who joined earlier this year (PRWeek, 6 May).

Prior to Ciba, Gallagher spent more than four years in Zurich at The Rowland Company; she has also formerly worked for Cohn & Wolfe and Manning Selvage & Lee, both in London.

Ferring currently retains agencies including Fleishman-Hillard - Brussels ( for corporate PR), plus Ruder Finn and Tonic Life Communications (product PR).
