We are starting 2021 with some exciting news—we are welcoming The Hive Health Group to the Fishawack Health pack. The Hive Health Group is made up of 2 brands, Hive Health and Pollen Health, which partner with clients across the life science industry.
The healthcare marketing and scientific communications agency is renowned for its strategic approach, scientific storytelling, and innovative patient engagement. Its capabilities bolster our integrated offering, ensuring clients benefit from the depth of our expertise and an impressive range of services spanning Medical Communications, Consulting, and Commercial capabilities.
The company’s patient-centric approach uncovers unmet needs for patients and healthcare professionals, which form the foundation for differentiated strategies for life science brands. Its expertise will help us further deliver on our mission to connect healthcare professionals and patients with the knowledge needed to live better lives.
Jas Hummel, Global Chief Executive Officer of The Hive Health Group said: “We are delighted to join Fishawack Health, a dynamic and growing business that offers our clients scale, expertise, and breadth of services in the healthcare sector. The Hive Health Group was acquired by Kin + Carta in 2014, who have more recently focused their commitment on the digital transformation space. The reality is that our healthcare clients need a much wider mix of capabilities and it has become clear to leadership in both organizations, that our offering and priorities were not aligned.”
Fishawack Health Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer, Oliver Dennis, said, “We’re excited to add Hive Health to the group—a strategically led healthcare communications brand with outstanding expertise in patient engagement. Our life science clients are looking for a new breed of partner to help guide them through complex and hypercompetitive markets, which is why we have purposefully sought out and acquired best-in-class agencies to build a nimble and collaborative organization.”
“Fishawack Health will support The Hive Health Group as they expand in the US,” Dennis added, “where we each already have a strong presence and give their clients access to a highly experienced pool of scientific, strategic, and creative experts who offer integrated commercial services across the entire product life cycle.”
“Fishawack Health is an impressive company,” noted Hummel. “Just like The Hive Group, it has a strong and fearless entrepreneurial spirit, and the company ensures humanity, authenticity, and empathy are at the heart of all its work. We are excited to join the team and give our clients access to a wider pool of expertise and a stronger offering that extends our capabilities in Medical Communication and Consulting, which includes market access, expanded digital offerings, and media solutions. I am thrilled about the next chapter in our journey.”
Group Creative Director, Melissa de Lusignan agreed. “Strong as individuals … thriving as a pack. It’s rare to find an organization whose culture and ethos truly mirror our own. For me,” de Lusignan elaborated, “the focus on collaboration, teamwork, and personal development are just some of the reasons why being part of this impressive organization is such an exciting prospect. Working alongside such diverse and talented teams will empower us to continue challenging our clients and ourselves to deliver work that changes lives and makes us proud.”
