NEW YORK, March 2, 2021 – GCI Health, a global specialty healthcare communications agency, announced today the appointment of three regional presidents on its global executive management team who will report to Kristin Cahill, Global CEO. These promotions come on the heels of the agency’s rapid regional expansion across several continents over the past two years and 26 percent global growth in 2020.
Sherry Goldberg has been promoted to President of North America. As Managing Director of GCI Health in the U.S., Goldberg has played a critical role in leading clients, recruiting and retaining the agency’s top talent and cultivating a best-in-class culture for the agency. In her role, Sherry will be responsible for growing one of the largest networks of healthcare communicators in the U.S., which includes offices in New York, Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Nashville, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Philadelphia and Washington, DC. She will also continue to drive forward GCI Health’s commitment to superior client service and its flexible and integrated approach to team building.
Kath Kerry has been named President of Europe and the Middle East. As Managing Director of the UK, Kerry has demonstrated a strong track record of delivering significant growth year over year and has forged key strategic partnerships and relationships with some of the leading pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies in the world. Kerry oversaw the recent opening of GCI Health’s Brussels office, which added policy and public affairs to the agency’s EU offering and solidified the agency’s presence in the three primary EU healthcare markets – UK, Germany and Belgium. Kerry will continue to build out the European capability, while also growing into burgeoning healthcare markets in the Middle East.
Rikki Jones has been named President of Asia-Pacific. Jones established the company’s Asia-Pacific presence in Singapore in 2019 and has since added offices in Hong Kong, Japan and India. As Managing Director of GCI Health in Asia-Pacific, she has built one of the region’s largest health-dedicated communications networks and expanded the agency’s core service offerings to also add medical communications and education. As President, Rikki will remain focused on partnering with the respective GCI Health Asia-Pacific market leads to continue growth in current markets, as well as on expanding the agency’s footprint across the region.
“Sherry, Kath and Rikki represent the heart and soul of GCI Health’s industry-leading culture and are proven drivers of growth, innovation and superior client service,” said Cahill. “With this strong leadership team in place, GCI Health will continue to fuel the transformation happening in healthcare communications and build on our outstanding track record of success.
