WCG Named Global Healthcare Agency of the Year

LONDON--(Marketwire - Oct 3, 2011) - WCG, a global marketing company focused on delivering integrated creative and interactive communications strategies and programs, for its clients, today announced it was named Global Healthcare Agency of the Year by The Holmes Report, a leading industry publication dedicated to providing insight, knowledge and recognition to communications professionals.

"While a leader in healthcare communications in the United States for many years, WCG is a relative newcomer to the highly competitive global healthcare arena, making this distinction particularly significant for the firm," said Global Practice Leader Gail Cohen. "WCG has made significant investments to build our international presence and capabilities in a relatively short period of time, and could not have achieved what we have without our amazing clients and organizations such as Public Relations Organisation International (PROI) and other independent agency partners."

"This award recognizes our commitment to partnering with our clients on truly integrated 'next practices' in marketing and communications that are most relevant to today's quickly evolving and constantly changing global economy."

WCG opened its own London office in 2008, and has more than doubled the number of people there in the last six months. The agency now serves the international communications needs of many multi-national companies, including Pfizer, Boston Scientific, Bayer, Genomic Health and ViroPharma.
