MS&L has appointed Peter Harris to director of its corporate practice in North America, and Renee Wilson to managing director of its New York office.
In his newly created position, Harris will work with MS&L's other corporate practice directors to drive corporate strategy, leverage the agency's brand positioning, and expand the company's offerings. Part of Harris's focus, according to Sara Donaldson, a spokesperson for MS&L, will be on corporate health opportunities as they relate to reputational management, corporate social responsibility and product responsibility. “Peter's corporate practice provides reputation management and stakeholder relations support to several pharma companies, working closely with our national healthcare practice,” said Donaldson.
As managing director of MS&L's largest office, Wilson will work closely with Jim Tsokanos, president, North America, to manage client relationships and business development. Wilson will also oversee the New York office's 200 employees, and will be working more closely with the New York healthcare leaders and clients on strategic communications and innovative programs in this space, according to Donaldson.
