JONATHAN WILSON APPOINTED PRESIDENT OF GLOBALHealthPR
Worldwide Health Communications Partnership Welcomes Top Scandinavian Firm, Effector
NEW YORK (March 25, 2016) – GLOBALHealthPR today announced Jonathan Wilson has been named president of the largest independent agency partnership worldwide dedicated to health and science communications. GLOBALHealthPR also welcomed Scandinavian firm Effector as the newest member of the partnership, adding its Copenhagen, Oslo and Stockholm offices to GLOBALHealthPR’s growing presence in 42 countries, spanning five continents.
Word about Wilson’s promotion was first shared with GLOBALHealthPR partner agencies at their annual general meeting in Mumbai in February. John J. Seng, founder and chair of GLOBALHealthPR and founder of Spectrum Science Communications, the U.S. agency partner and owner of the GLOBALHealthPR brand, broke the news to more than 20 partners from 13 different countries during his keynote presentation, to enthusiastic acclaim. Wilson is also president of Spectrum.
“Jonathan Wilson’s leadership at Spectrum and GLOBALHealthPR over more than two years has led to unprecedented growth for the firm and our global partnership,” Seng said. “This outstanding performance as well as Jonathan’s vision for GLOBALHealthPR as a superior, client-focused alternative to the disconnected holding company network model drives today’s announcement of Jonathan as president.”

With more than 600 health-specialist communications professionals and more than 20 PhDs, researchers and medical advisors on staff, the agencies that make up the partnership share a belief in insights-driven strategies and a commitment to collaboration in order to provide clients the best possible counsel and execution.
“The strength of this unique partnership of global health communications agencies was a huge factor in my decision to join the Spectrum team a number of years ago,” Wilson said. “As an independent network of best-in-class agencies we have deep relationships that lead to true collaboration, fueling strong local insights and seamless execution across borders. Adding Effector and its talented team to GLOBALHealthPR opens more opportunities for collaboration and business growth for all of our partners, and I’m thrilled to welcome them on board.”

The agency was founded by Managing Director Elisabeth Tissot Ludvig, and is the preferred healthcare agency in Denmark to more than 20 pharmaceutical and medical device companies.
Effector shares GLOBALHealthPR partners’ passion for healthcare communications and superior client service.

Scandinavia is home to some of the most successful healthcare companies, each with a strong tradition of developing medicines and devices that improve people’s lives all over the world,” Tissot Ludvig said “We look forward to offering our clients enhanced international capabilities through the GLOBALHealthPR partnership and, at the same time, providing key insights and expertise to new clients who are entering Scandinavia.”
“The addition of Effector to the GLOBALHealthPR partnership of independent firms further strengthens our ability to offer international-scale health and life science clients the best and broadest reach in expertise and insights,” said Seng. “Elisabeth Tissot Ludvig and her team really rise above in Scandinavia, putting clients first. We’re privileged to welcome Effector to our like-minded partnership.”
