Edelman PR Worldwide has poached Miles Fisher-Pollard from

Burson-Marsteller to head its UK healthcare arm.



Based in London, Fisher-Pollard will lead a team of 15, reporting to

Edelman London managing director Tari Hibbitt and global healthcare head

Nick May.



In the past year Edelman has snared two senior staff from B-M. Nick May

joined Edelman’s healthcare practice in April and Jonathan Howard left

B-M in August to join Edelman as managing director of its European

technology practice.



Fisher-Pollard was director of B-M’s North Asia healthcare practice.



He replaces deputy European sector head Mark Carter, who is emigrating

to Canada with his family.



Carter joined Edelman in 1996, rising to deputy European healthcare

sector head earlier this year. He will join Canadian general agency

National Public Relations in a senior role.



Fisher-Pollard has worked in medical communications and healthcare PR

for ten years in Australia, the UK and Hong Kong.



Deputy managing director of Edelman London Patrick Roberts said:

’Increasingly, we are appointing senior staff in all practice areas

whose experience matches the global needs of our clients and the

international character of their stakeholder audience.’



Fisher-Pollard will be responsible for Edelman healthcare clients

including Eli Lilly, Procter and Gamble and Roche Diagnostics.
