Under Jamie Dowd’s leadership, Genentech became one of Weber Shandwick’s most comprehensive accounts, supporting more than 30 products and earning multiple industry recognitions. Dowd not only helped grow the account, she also grew the New York health practice 35% and has been instrumental in the expansion into Philadelphia.

She also helped significantly diversify the New York practice, retaining key large pharma accounts while securing new opportunities with startups. Last year, she became the North American leader for one of the industry’s most ambitious wins, the Novartis global consolidation.

The face of client centricity for the firm, Dowd’s approach to working with clients and teams has become best practice across the most high-profile accounts. She is a model client experience leader for Weber Shandwick’s global client experience program, offering constant insight into the strategy and execution of this critical firm initiative.

One former client praised her “keen ability to look at a situation, take a step back, and provide perspective based on her vast experience in communications.” She’s also known as an exceptional leader and manager who is highly attentive to her team’s needs.
