Sudler & Hennessey broadens global reach with opening of new Mexico office
23 March, 2007
For more than 65 years, Sudler & Hennessey has been one of the world’s leading full-service healthcare communications companies - providing promotional and educational services to a wide range of domestic and global healthcare clients in traditional categories of ethical pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, devices, and OTC healthcare brands, as well as broader areas in direct-to-consumer and response marketing.
S&H was one of the first healthcare communications companies to “go global,” opening offices in Europe and Australia in the early 1970’s. The company’s global reach currently extends to 27 different countries. And now S&H is expanding its worldwide operations even further – establishing a presence in Latin America.
For the past few years, S&H has been working with a number of clients throughout Latin America by developing both promotional and medical education initiatives tailored specifically to the Latin America market, and with the steady pace of growth in the region, it is now time for a local S&H presence.
“We remain committed to supporting our multinational clients wherever they need our help, and the addition of our Mexico office will play a significant role toward achieving that goal” stated Jed Beitler, S&H Chairman and CEO, Worldwide.
“S&H Mexico is more than a healthcare communications company” states Alejandro Pineda, General Manager of the new office. “It serves as a proactive strategic partner for both pharma and consumer brand clients, by developing targeted and impactful communications, as well as programs that support the needs of the healthcare community, and inform and educate patients.”
Pineda continues: “I think that for the first time in Mexico, healthcare companies will find a specialized communications partner that really understand their needs – and can provide access to a whole range of products and services from one single agency.”
Leading our efforts to grow S&H’s presence and credentials in the Latin American professional promotion market are Larry Lannino (EVP and Client Service Director), bringing with him more than 20 years global experience in the professional healthcare industry, and Luigi Cardone (Team Leader Latin America) with over 10 years experience in marketing.
Alejandro Pineda (General Manager) having served in marketing roles at both Pfizer and AstraZeneca in Mexico, brings a unique perspective of product management experience and knowing what a product manager, working in this environment, really needs from an agency partner.
Medical education initiatives at S&H Mexico are being lead by Ruben Gutierrez (EVP and Managing Director), a veteran to the medical education industry bringing with him more than 20 years of expertise.
