Klicksters distinguished by innovative thinking and outstanding leadership in healthcare marketing
TORONTO, ON/NEW YORK, NY – July 16, 2019 – Klick Health today announced that Managing Director Greg Rice and Senior Vice President of Brand Strategy Leslie Jamison are being honored this evening as 2019 PM360 ELITE 100 award winners. They are the latest Klicksters to be recognized for their accomplishments in the life sciences marketing industry. Earlier this year, MM&M magazine named Klick’s Senior Vice President of Innovation Keith Liu a 2019 Innovation Catalyst, and its Vice President of Science and Regulatory Julie Turnbull a 2019 Hall of Femme Woman to Watch.
“We are in awe of all our Klicksters who consistently contribute so much to our organization, our clients, and the healthcare industry at large and are thrilled that Greg, Leslie, Keith, and Julie have been recognized for their respective expertise and ongoing efforts to make a difference in people’s lives,” said President Lori Grant.
In naming Rice an ELITE Mentor, PM360 magazine said that his affinity toward conducting happiness surveys four times a year differentiates him as an amazing leader and mentor. “Greg believes that reporting the survey results back to the team helps them focus on the right things… It also creates transparency and gives people reason to expect more from management…Formerly Klick Health’s Senior Vice President of Strategy, Greg started Katalyst (part of the Klick family) with 15 people six years ago and has built it into a thriving 140-person-strong commercialization partner.” (Since the article was published, Katalyst has added 30 people to its team.)
PM360 recognized Jamison as an ELITE Strategist, calling her “one of the industry’s most passionate business-building strategists…focused on building a center of excellence in brand development to help life sciences clients bring branding into the digital age (and) collaborating with clients to develop breakthrough brands that maximize a molecule’s potential through motivating customer experiences that are brought to life visually, verbally, and experientially.”
In March, MM&M named Turnbull a Hall of Femme Woman to Watch, saying her “background in healthcare academia…enabled her to become a ‘multilingual diplomat’ who can speak the languages of strategists, web developers, clients, and patients.” The magazine added she has written over 30 peer-reviewed papers related to rare diseases and “is a pro at translating scientific information.”
MM&M recognized Liu as an Innovation Catalyst in May for his role in launching Circulation, the first non-emergency medical transportation platform to integrate with both healthcare systems and Uber, as well as Klick’s SymPulse Tele-Empathy Device, which wirelessly records and transmits patient tremors to foster more clinical empathy and better care for people living with movement disorders.
