After a record-breaking year of expansion in 2015,PARTNERS+simons, a Myelin Communications-owned firm specializing in brand communications and integrated marketing services, is positioning itself for continued growth into 2016 and beyond. The firm, exclusively serving healthcare and financial services companies, today announced a new executive team structure and the launch of a strategic business unit, to serve the firm’s growing life sciences portfolio.

“On the heels of a strong 2015 we are solidifying our executive team, which will equip the company to better anticipate and address the needs of today’s CMO,” said Rich Levy, CEO of PARTNERS+simons and Myelin Communications. “By unifying creative and technology under one leader, investing in strategic thought leadership and forming a new life sciences business unit, we are positioning the agency to deliver results-driven work that forward-thinking clients demand.”

Effective immediately, Andrew Pelosi will become General Manager, overseeing account management, media, delivery and business development. Bob Minihan will add technology to his responsibilities as Chief Creative Officer, better reflecting the convergence in thinking across these two disciplines. PARTNERS+simons also identified the need to create a new role to drive high-level thought leadership. As such, Stephanie Rogers will become EVP of Strategy and Analytics to provide proactive, strategic thinking and content creation across client verticals.

The recently formed life sciences strategic unit will be lead by Pat McGloin.

“Our life sciences business has doubled year-over-year for the past three years,” said Levy, “and clients have responded favorably to our holistic understanding of healthcare, particularly as it relates to the Affordable Care Act.”

A new Executive Leadership Team consisting of Pelosi, Minihan, Rogers and McGloin will interact regularly with CEO Rich Levy to continue the company’s strong growth trajectory. The new structure will also allow Levy more bandwidth to lead the integration of multiple Myelin Communications-owned businesses and continue to identify acquisition targets to strengthen and broaden Myelin’s services – benefiting new and existing clients.
