Digitas hangs shingles in UK, Boston

Share this article:
Digitas Health is opening offices in London and Boston to accommodate several years' worth of strong growth, the Publicis network said.

The London office will serve the international needs of current clients and will be headed by June Dawson, who becomes SVP, managing director. Dawson previously headed digital business at the London office of Ogilvy Healthworld.

The Boston office, housed within the headquarters of parent company Digitas, will aim to pull talent from Digitas' non-pharma consumer-facing accounts into the health space and will be led by Kirk Williamson, SVP marketing, and Michael Tiedemann, SVP creative.

“There aren't any silos between Digitas and Digitas Health,” said Williamson of the Boston office. “We have a rich digital pedigree in Boston.”

Digitas Health has seen around 50% annual revenue growth for each of the past three years and has won 14 new client brands over the past year.
