MORRISVILLE, N.C. – June 23, 2022 – Syneos Health Communications – the portfolio of Syneos Health® agencies designed to deliver insights-driven integrated communications spanning advertising, public relations, patient advocacy, medical communications, managed markets, omnichannel, naming and branding – has made two strategic senior medical communications hires in Germany, expanding the offering across Europe. These new roles further enhance the organization’s ability to deploy high-value Medical Affairs solutions working across the product development lifecycle.
Thomas Nisters joins as Medical Director for Europe, with 25 years of experience in medical and strategic communications. Thomas started his career in critical care and anaesthesiology and has worked as a consultant for a variety of pharmaceutical companies, translating complex science into successful medical communications programs. At Syneos Health, he will further amplify an already strong European footprint in medical communications offerings, with a focus on leading growing client demands in Germany and across the region. To enhance integrated solutions across the product lifecycle, Thomas will embed medical communications within solution design – working across creative, public relations, and marketing to support scientific storytelling by blending scientific and creative excellence.
Yvonne Jackson joins as Senior Strategy Director for Europe, with over 20 years of experience in healthcare marketing across a wide range of therapeutic areas spanning pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology. As an established strategist, Yvonne will focus on brand development initiatives ranging from blockbuster brands to oncology products. She will work on projects related to disease model development, linking scientific and medical strategy development to commercial strategy, and the launch and lifecycle management of pharmaceutical brands and medical devices. Yvonne is also an experienced cross-functional workshop facilitator.
