Health Unlimited, the global health consultancy and communications division of the Unlimited Group, has recruited former Ogilvy Healthworld and Publicis LifeBrands creative chief Jon Watson to lead the agency’s creative department.
Reporting to global CEO Tim Bird, Watson joins the health board to further build the global creative capabilities and integrated offer and build the London-based creative team.
Watson has worked extensively in advertising and communications across Europe and the US, with a particular focus on the healthcare sector, having started his career at WCRS/dma
Bird said: “Jon is a well-known senior creative talent in our industry. We are delighted to welcome him and his enormous talent to our global team that is working collaboratively as one team to inspire and create imaginative solutions to solving complex health challenges. He brings with him an impressive resume and proven track record of success.”
Watson, who will be executive creative director, added: “Unlike some agencies out there, Health Unlimited is currently enjoying a time of great positive change. To be part of it and to help shape it is a rare and exciting opportunity. Well up for it.”
