25th May 2016 - Ashfield is proud to announce that Pegasus, part of Ashfield Healthcare Communications, won the prestigious ‘EMEA Healthcare PR Consultancy of the Year’ at the Sabre Awards in Berlin organised by The Holmes Report. What a scoop! The judges recognised their exceptional integrated offer, their fast pace of growth and their investment in people and skills.
Here’s what they said about Pegasus….
With the traditional Rx pharmaceutical business going through a difficult period—relatively few new blockbuster drugs, and a challenging regulatory environment—healthcare PR firms are being forced to look for new avenues of growth, and those looking to the consumer health space have found at least a couple of established competitors taking the lead. Pegasus, based on the south coast of England and focused on “inspiring healthy decisions,” must be the most eye-catching of these, growing 39% in 2015 to almost £9m in fee income. A team of 100 (up 30%) in Brighton now works across a broad range of services, including digital, social and creative, helping the firm net new business last year from Daiichi Sankyo, Denplan, DuPont, Elanco, GR Lanes, LloydsPharmacy and PAGB. Existing accounts include Thornton & Ross, Holland & Barrett, Godrej Group, LF Beauty, Danone, Novo Nordisk and Bayer (OTC & Animal Health) — helping to demonstrate how Pegasus has grown as health has become central to conversations across a range of sectors, including technology and food.
Recognising those shifts, Pegasus has invested in both specialising its sector skills and broadening its relevance to clients in adjacent sectors, via more thought leadership and focused hiring plans. All of which is underpinned by an outstanding workplace culture — turnover is just 6% and there are numerous initiatives in place to improve learning and development.
