PARSIPPANY, NJ--(Marketwire - Feb 9, 2012) - Ogilvy CommonHealth Worldwide (ogilvychww.com), representing the largest assembly of creative talent in the world of healthcare communications, today announced Claire Pisano, a senior account executive at Ogilvy CommonHealth Payer Marketing, was named to the Medical Advertising Hall of Fame's (MAHF) first annual Future Famers Program at Tuesday night's awards dinner held at the Pierre Hotel in New York.

Ogilvy CommonHealth Worldwide is a part of the Ogilvy & Mather network (www.ogilvy.com) and a WPP company (NASDAQ: WPPGY) (www.wpp.com). The organization houses and maintains individual Ogilvy CommonHealth and Ogilvy Healthworld brand identities within the marketplace.

Over the past decade, the MAHF has recognized those individuals who have made a lasting mark on healthcare advertising by inducting them into the Hall of Fame. The Future Famers Award recognizes those destined to leave their mark on the industry. To be eligible, recipients should be in medical advertising for no more than five years (generally 30 years of age or younger) and have already made a significant contribution in the healthcare marketing arena. In addition, recipients must show a solid commitment to community service, either at a local or national level.

Ms. Pisano began her career with the Ogilvy CommonHealth Worldwide network in the summer of 2007 as a traffic intern. Over the next few years, she continued to excel in the traffic, business and account management departments. Currently a senior account executive, Ms. Pisano is responsible for supporting and fostering growing business within the agency and managing the daily activities of her designated accounts.

David Chapman, managing partner of Ogilvy CommonHealth Worldwide and chairman of the MAHF stated, "Claire's innate leadership skills, integrity and results-driven attitude are just a few of the reasons she was accepted into the first ever Future Famers Programs. Her strong client relationships, creative and strategic thinking, and positive mentorship of junior associates, coupled with her commitment and dedication to both the Association of Retarded Citizens (ARC) and the American Heart Association (AHA), make her a shining example of the young professionals we are looking for to honor with this exceptional program."

Tuesday's dinner celebrated the induction of eight young industry professionals to the inaugural Future Famers Program. Awardees will have the opportunity to learn leadership skills at various networking events, including the privilege of attending a "Breakfast with Champions" with past and present MAHF inductees.
