“With 20 plus years of strategic communications experience, spanning investor relations, in-house corporate communications, technology transfer/business development and integrated agency services, Keri brings significant depth to W2O’s corporate, crisis and financial communications offering,” said Jennifer Gottlieb, President of W2O. “We are excited to have her join W2O pure to lead our growing Integrated Corporate Communications offering, and provide IR support and expertise across all of our operating companies.”

She earned a Bachelor’s degree in political science from Boston University and a Master’s degree in journalism from the University of Maryland.
“I am thrilled to rejoin the team at Pure and very excited to become part of W2O,” said Mattox. “I look forward to bringing my experience working with healthcare companies to develop and execute successful integrated communications and investor relations strategies to this new role and to the broader W2O network.”
