AXON is pleased to announce new roles for three senior team members within the agency’s Medical Communications (MedComms) stream, following continued growth of the agency in 2016.

After successfully leading the MedComms stream for eight years to achieve countless notable successes, Dr. Emma Kenny is taking on a new leadership role within the agency, focusing on further diversification of the client base, establishing innovative hiring practices and expanding the agency’s capabilities, among other responsibilities. Emma is relinquishing her leadership of the MedComms stream to take on this new role, although is continuing to work with clients on scientific and strategic projects, as well as other responsibilities as a Partner within the firm.

“Emma has successfully grown the MedComms stream to what we know it as today,” says Ralph Sutton, International Managing Partner, NATIONAL Public Relations. “After 12 years at AXON, Emma knows the agency and our firm inside and out, and we believe she will play a critical role in helping lead the agency in new directions as we set ourselves up for future success.”

Taking the reins from Emma in leading AXON’s MedComms stream is Dr. Andy Grigg, who joined the agency in mid-2016 as a Director. In a relatively short period of time, Andy has proven himself to be a valuable leader, offering a fresh perspective to the agency and providing a seamless transition from Emma’s previous leadership.

Newly joining the leadership team of the agency, Dr. Emma Lemon has been promoted to Director, following a strong year of driving significant new business and leading large client accounts and teams.

“Since joining AXON, both Andy and Emma Lemon have established themselves as pillars within the agency, and I am confident they will both continue to build and strengthen their relationships with their clients and team members in these new roles,” said Miranda Dini, Managing Partner at AXON. “The new roles for all three of these Directors exemplifies AXON’s commitment to continuing to invest in and provide new career opportunities for our team even at the most senior levels.”
