Walkley joins the Surrey-based consultancy from Huntsworth Health and will advise clients including ProStrakan Europe, Merck Serono International and Innovex Europe.
She was part of the seven-strong management team of Avenue HKM when it was acquired by Huntsworth in late 2004. Just one member of that team – client services director Cathy McDonnell – today remains with Huntsworth Health.
At Medicom, Walkley reports to chairman and MD Martin Ellis and deputy MD Gaynor Hayburn.
Prior to joining Avenue HKM, Walkley spent around a decade at healthcare agency Maureen Cropper Communications.
Huntsworth Health recently promoted Sian Hurst to the position of client services director.
