Katy said of her appointment: “I am delighted to be joining the healthcare team at MSL. The breadth of expertise across the agency, combined with the ability to truly deliver integrated communications campaigns, makes MSL ideally placed to address a diverse and evolving communications landscape. I look forward to contributing to the company’s continued success.”
