LONDON—The Bell Pottinger Group has formed Bell Pottinger Health, a new business focused on growing the group’s healthcare business and has hired Shipra Singh, previously managing director of healthcare and wellbeing at Hill & Knowlton, as managing director. Singh will work alongside a life sciences investor relations team led by Mike Wort.

 

Bell Pottinger Health will report to Kevin Murray, chairman of Bell Pottinger Group, and will be led by Richard Anderson, CEO of its De Facto Communications unit, in the role of chairman and by Singh as managing director. The agency is in the process of establishing an international footprint.

 

Says Anderson: “Bell Pottinger already has a significant presence in the health sector, especially with those involved in the commissioning and delivery of healthcare services and through De Facto, in the development of new medicines and health technologies. By creating a new and focused communications business we can extend the reach of Bell Pottinger across a much broader health spectrum to include disease prevention, diagnosis and treatments.”
