GCI Health, a global specialty healthcare and medical communications agency, announced that the Company is expanding into Brussels, Belgium, a move designed to further the agency’s European presence and expand its global public affairs offering. GCI Health Brussels, situated near the EU parliament, will offer clients a full range of government and public affairs, integrated communications and advocacy capabilities.
Neha Dave, a seasoned EU policy professional who brings almost two decades of experience in government relations, has joined GCI Health Brussels as Senior Director and will oversee the expansion along with Kath Kerry, UK Managing Director. Dave will join GCI Health’s well-established and experienced global public affairs and policy team, which is led by Ryan Kuresman, Group Senior Vice President of Public Affairs and Health Policy.
“The addition of our new office in Brussels reflects our commitment to our growing EU client base and builds on the success of GCI Health’s offices in the UK and Germany,” said Kerry. “Our EU expansion will further enhance our ability to drive cohesive strategies across the region and mobilize on-the-ground support as needed.”
Against the backdrop of unprecedented global health, societal and geo-political challenges, this expansion in Europe will also offer clients a new approach to public affairs that is grounded in public health, fueled by community advocacy and solidified through public policy.
“GCI Health offers a differentiated approach to public affairs that reflects the increasing interconnectedness of policy, advocacy and global health in today’s shifting environment,” said Kristin Cahill, Global CEO, GCI Health. “Building a truly global and seamless team of health policy specialists, from Washington to Brussels and across our global network, further strengthens our reach and will help our clients navigate the complexity of healthcare policy across borders.”
The Agency recently announced an additional Asia-Pacific expansion, with new offices in Japan and India.
