Euro RSCG Life named former Ketchum healthcare head David Catlett president of its PR division.
Catlett, who headed Ketchum’s global healthcare practice for eight years, left the firm earlier this year. He reports to Al Paz, CEO of the firm’s marketing services group. The appointment frees up Noonan Russo chief Tony Russo to focus on the corporate side of the PR healthcare and biotech business, said Euro RSCG Life CEO Ron Pantello.
Ketchum has not yet appointed a permanent successor to Catlett but last week named Nancy Hicks associate director of the North American healthcare practice, a new position. Hicks was previously head of the firm’s Washington practice. Ketchum’s global healthcare practice reports to Lorraine Thelian, senior partner.
