Former Euro PR head joins GolinHarrisFormer Euro RSCG Life PR head David Catlett has resurfaced as head of GolinHarris’ New York healthcare practice.
Catlett, who joined Euro RSCG Life PR as president from Ketchum last year, becomes EVP for the Chicago-based firm, charged with growing the company’s healthcare practice on the East Coast. He reports to managing director Jennifer Cohan.
Despite its Midwestern base, GolinHarris has amassed a roster of pharma clients including Bristol-Myers Squibb; GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare; Ortho McNeil Neurologics; Shire; and Cord Blood Registry.
Catlett left Euro RSCG Life PR, the company’s product PR practice, in April, around the time the network reorganized under an executive committee following the departure of CEO Jim Metropoulos. In May, the agency spun off its corporate PR practice, Russo Partners, in a buyout, maintaining a referral relationship with the firm.
