Tanya West: new head of healthcare 

West previously worked at Mint Health for one year as its client service director. Prior to this she held an account director role at Cube for two-and-a-half years.

Working in London for seven years, West was also an account director at Munro & Foster for over four years after ending her two year senior account manager stint at Athena Medical PR.

West said the healthcare business sector in Australia was “exciting, complex and ever-evolving”.

“I look forward to developing our offering and growing the team to deliver strategic communication programs that reflect the changing treatment landscape that includes the increasingly involved role of patients in their own health and the significant growth in the use of social media and digital channels as health information resources,” West said.

Katrina Brangwin, Hill+Knowlton Australia’s managing director said: “Tanya’s appointment and her very deep experience reflects our commitment to expanding our offering in health and pharma, consumer marketing and the health and well-being of consumers.

“Tanya is very seasoned senior healthcare consultant with a thorough understanding of the healthcare sector and the environment in which her clients operate.”

Hill+Knowlton Strategies Australia has worked with clients including Banana Boat, HSBC, Applejacks and Cancer Council of Australia.
