Hill+Knowlton Strategies (H+K) has announced the appointment of Ritika Jauhari as the lead of its healthcare practice in India.
Jauhari will help drive the overall growth and management of the business working alongside Abhishek Gulyani, CEO, H+K India. She moves from SPAG where she was senior director.
Gulyani said, “We are delighted to welcome Ritika as our new head of healthcare. Today, India’s healthcare sector is on the cusp of tremendous transformation and I believe Ritika’s fresh perspective and experience will lead to significant and impactful collaborations. Her extensive knowledge of the sector will play a crucial role in further developing H+K’s healthcare practice. With her appointment, H+K continues to grow larger and stronger every day, with the aim of expanding its portfolio and presence in the market.”
Jauhari said, “Healthcare as a sector has evolved. It is vast and promising. Industry leaders, government stakeholders, individuals or researchers, are all viewing healthcare differently today. This brings huge opportunity and responsibility. H+K has a legacy of leading many purpose driven healthcare campaigns globally, and I hope to strengthen this with my experience and learnings. Having worked exclusively in the healthcare communications domain, I understand the nuances of the sector and need for specialised knowledge and content. My focus will be to build a thought leadership position for H+K healthcare within the sector and eventually carve a niche for itself.”
