Hanover today announced that Anna Korving has joined the group’s health practice as Chair, working closely with Managing Director of Health Andrew Harrison.
Korving co-founded and built Resolute Communications, one of the most successful independent healthcare agencies of the last 15 years, selling it to the Publicis Healthcare Communications Group in 2010 and continuing to run the growing business within Publicis. She most recently served as Publicis’s Executive Vice President of Global Business Development. Korving was last year awarded the prestigious Communiquétor of the Year award and in 2017 will be Chair of Judges for the Communiqué Awards for the third year running.
Korving will work across the award-winning Hanover Health business including London, Brussels and Dublin, and will have a particular focus on continuing the development and growth of the UK and international product and corporate communications practice led by Director Frances Beves. Hanover Health grew by over 45% in 2016 to £3.7m revenue and recently made a number of strategic moves including the launch of a UK and international Market Access practice, the opening of a new office in Dublin with strong health expertise, and the development of a UK Advisory Network comprising former senior NHS managers.
Harrison said: ‘Anna is one of the stand out entrepreneurs and communications leaders in our industry. She joins us at a critical juncture, as we mature into a multi-disciplined health team networked across three offices. We are at the start of an exciting chapter and I am thrilled that Anna has chosen to join us.’
Korving said: ‘Hanover Health occupies a very distinct place in the market, bringing together expertise in communications, market access, and policy. This combination of skills means they can solve really complex client needs. I’m excited to be joining the team at a time of investment and growth – we’re going to make some magic together.’
