I have always been a believer that hiring the right talent is key to an organization’s success. After all, you are only as good as the people you have. It is the people who are the core of what we do and who will make the difference in the quality of our work. At WCG, we hire only the best talent to ensure that we can continue to provide top quality solutions to our customers.
I am thrilled to announce that the WCG London office has just hired 3 new top talents to further strengthen our global team and further establish London as the global centre of excellence for WCG:
- Malena Johannes joined us in October 2012 as Account Manager. Malena brings diversified healthcare experience comprising a unique multi-disciplinary in-house perspective with agency experience. Prior to joining WCG, Malena completed a three-year corporative Bachelor programme in International Business Administration with Bayer Healthcare in both Germany and the United States. She also speaks fluent German and French.
- Kate Varnum joined last month as Senior Account Manager from Ogilvy Healthworld, where she worked in both the London and Washington DC offices. Kate has a broad range of healthcare communications experience with integrated US and European teams specialising in global product and corporate communications.
- Martina Spranger joins this month as Account Manager from Burson Marsteller, Zurich. She holds a Ph.D. in Molecular Biology from the Institute of Molecular Systems Biology, ETH Zurich, and speaks German and French.
Not only are we adding to our global talent pool with exciting new hires – our existing team members are being recognized for their outstanding talent and contribution to the industry. Senior Account Manager Neha Wadhwa is a finalist for a prestigious ‘Golden Hedgehog’ award that recognises the brightest and most promising communicator under 30 years old working in an agency.
Having joined as managing director just 8 months ago, I am proud to take a step back and see how the team has evolved to meet our growing global business needs, which is greatly attributed to our strategy to hire the ‘best and brightest talent’ in the industry.
Some say the team is only as good as the man in charge. I believe the team is only as good as the talent it hires. WCG London’s Global team is now stronger than ever.
