McCann Health London Announces New Leadership Line-Up

McCann Health London announces a new leadership line-up in a raft of management promotions as part of the group’s ongoing growth, enabled by last year’s formation of IPG Health.

Alex Frew becomes Managing Director of McCann Health London, reporting to President of IPG Health UK, Jonathan Kukathasan, who previously held the role.  Alex has been with McCann Health London for five years, latterly as Managing Partner.

Rob Fuller, previously Head of Strategy for McCann Health London, becomes Head of Planning for McCann Health agencies across Europe, focused on strengthening strategic output across the region.

Parrus Doshi will step into the role of Head of Strategy for McCann Health London. Parrus, who has been with McCann Health London for over five years, has been critical to helping the agency become recognised as one of the most effective in healthcare.

“Alex, Rob and Parrus have been vital to our growth and success in recent years, and I’m thrilled to see them elevated to these new roles” said Jonathan Kukathasan, President of IPG Health UK. “With their focus on fostering greater connectivity and interoperability across our McCann Health agencies and FCB Health sister agencies, we will undoubtedly take our clients through the next period of growth.”

Alex Frew, Managing Director of McCann Health London comments, “It is wonderful to be part of an organisation that supports personal career progression at all levels across the agency. It’s a great opportunity for everyone involved and I’m delighted to be leading the team forward during this exciting new phase for healthcare communications.”
