“Healthcare today is more complex than ever before, and clients are challenged with disruptive forces at every level, ranging from a more empowered patient to regulatory hurdles to web-connected medical devices,” Murino said in the same release. “By bringing our European teams closer together, we'll deliver the best of Kantar Health to our clients and provide them with even greater value as they work to achieve their business goals.”

Murino joined Kantar Health, formerly known as Taylor Nelson Sofres Healthcare, in 1999 as head of healthcare. He has also worked at Pfizer and Novartis in marketing roles.
