Virgo Health nabs Gürtin from Ruder Finn post

Virgo Health PR has poached Catherine Gürtin from Ruder Finn as it bolsters its account management ranks.

Gürtin (née Johnstone) joins on 27 March in an account director role, and will work on undisclosed global and European business for the agency.

At Ruder Finn, which she is set to leave this week after more than three years, Gürtin worked on UK and international business in the areas of arthritis, cancer and depression.

In her position as a senior account manager she worked with clients including Pfizer (European brand comms for arthritis product Celebrex), Lundbeck (global brand comms for depression treatment Cipralex), Novartis (oncology: brand comms for Zometa), and Amgen (NICE appraisal support for cancer-therapy-induced anaemia treatment Aranesp).

Ruder Finn deputy MD Pat Pearson said: 'We wish her all the best.'
Prior to her taking the post at Ruder Finn, Gürtin worked for just over two years at the agency Vane Percy & Associates.
