We at Synergy Vision are adding the role of Chief Operating Officer (COO) to our board and recruiting internally to fill the post of Managing Director (MD).
With effect from January 2021, former MD Eileen Gallagher takes on the role of COO, with a clear focus on operational excellence to support ambitious growth targets. Eileen is part of the founding team that developed Synergy Vision in 2009.
Karine Henderson is appointed Managing Director, remaining client-facing and continuing to build Synergy Vision’s strategic and creative offerings.
Karine was previously Director of Medical Strategy, having joined just over a year ago with more than 20 years’ healthcare communications experience, across both clients and agencies.
Her expertise in strategic planning and communications straddles a diverse range of therapy areas and brands across the product lifecycle. She is passionate about driving better patient experience and outcomes and is excited about the new opportunities that lie ahead.
Ffyona Dawber, Chief Executive Officer and Synergy Vision founder said: “This new structure allows us to continue our growth plans over the next five years. 2020 has been challenging but allowed our team to innovate and find new ways to deliver for our clients whilst continuing to grow.
“I feel confident with our plans to develop the company and take Synergy Vision to the next level, and I am delighted to have such an esteemed senior team to take us on the next step in our journey.”
Eileen Gallagher, Chief Operating Officer, added: “With continued growth, more employees and an increasingly diverse client base this will allow us to hone our focus. In turn, this will help us to maintain the Synergy Vision people-focused ethos and to continue to deliver the difference for clients.”
