Makara Health promotes Katie Bright to director

Katie Bright has joined the leadership team at Makara Health, following her promotion to director at the UK-based healthcare communications agency.

In her new role Bright will work alongside Helen Laurence, also recently appointed a director, as the agency expands its senior leadership team.

Bright joined Makara Health in 2015 as an associate director and in her new role will focus on engagement programmes that span training, medical education and patient engagement.

She said: “I’m thrilled to take up the role of director at Makara and help drive the next stage of growth for the company. Since joining Makara, I’ve seen how the combination of the senior team and a truly flexible working model allows us to deliver high quality, innovative programmes and I’m looking forward to growing and managing our engagement offering to deliver even more powerful results for our clients.”

Bright brings over 16 years’ health experience to the healthcare communications agency and was most recently senior solutions director at behaviour change consultancy Spoonful of Sugar.

Prior to that she worked in OTC and consumer advertising, with positions in global agencies such as Sudler & Hennessey and Publicis Life Brands.

Louise Sharp, owner and managing director of Makara Health, said: “Katie’s self-starter attitude epitomises the culture at Makara Health and her collaborative approach means that colleagues and clients alike love working with her.

“Katie brings unrivalled experience across a spectrum of engagement and brand activities and we are delighted that she will now be taking on the role of director at Makara and helping to fuel our continued growth.”
