NEW YORK—Healthcare communications holding group is merging its two public relations operations. Chamberlain Communications Group will align with Chandler Chicco Companies to create the largest international public relations network focused exclusively on addressing the needs of the global health sector.
According to Bob Chandler, founder and principal of Chandler Chicco Companies, “Chamberlain’s scientific focus is a natural fit within the Chandler Chicco portfolio.” The move will add more than 60 communications professionals to the network, enabling Chandler Chicco Companies to deploy more than 350 experts challenges worldwide, across 12 CCC companies and units serving clients across the healthcare industry worldwide.
Both Chamberlain Healthcare Public Relations and its sister agency, the recently launched SharedVoice Public Relations, will continue to operate as independent entities. Jonathan Wilson will continue to lead Chamberlain Communications Group, reporting directly to Bob Chandler. Wilson—in tandem with managing director of Chandler Chicco Companies Europe, Fiona Hall—will also play a critical role in expanding CCC’s global footprint.
