Following their two major industry awards this year and major project wins with Bristol-Myers Squibb, Zoetis and AstraZeneca, Acteon is heading into the second-half of 2016 with ambitious plans to grow their Medcomms team to support their expanding client base.

Ami Snelling joins Acteon with more than 8 years’ experience in medical communications. Her career started in educational publishing, but she soon discovered her passion was in communicating medical science. Her experience spans medical and value communications, where she has worked in a variety of therapeutic areas including virology, cardiovascular, haematology, neuroscience and oncology.

Elly Wright is passionate about developing effective and inspiring communication programmes. Her nine years’ experience in learning and marketing spans the culture and education sectors. Using a learner-centred approach, Elly creates engaging content that is tailored to the needs and requirements of the learner. She is practised in engaging internal and external stakeholders, and implementing cross-company initiatives in response to core business objectives.

Anna Kanji developed her interest in medical education while working as a nurse in London teaching hospitals. She has subsequently accumulated 15 years’ experience developing creative learning materials for diverse audiences – from health care workers in rural Africa to Medical Science Liaisons. Her particular skill is in translating complex information into accessible, engaging content for specialist target groups.

“We’re delighted to welcome Ami, Elly and Anna to the team at this exciting time,” said Tori McKillen, Partner at Acteon.  “Acteon has been growing consistently year on year, and lately we have seen a huge demand from our pharmaceutical clients. Our diverse range of expertise across both human and veterinary medicine products gives us a distinct advantage in a very competitive market.”
