Richard Ashdown

Senior Director, Product, Service and Innovation
McCann Health Medical Communications

Type of Company:
Communications Agency

Bio: With a rich hinterland of creative and award winning experiences across other industries, including a decade in the video games industry, Richard has a unique perspective on med comms and it's fair to say this fresh and often different way of thinking is what clients and colleagues often want to tap into. The "new normal" in healthcare is where the narratives of his earlier career cross over; and over the last 15 odd years, Richard has worked as a strategist across various therapy areas for global clients, supporting projects programmes and initiatives to better connect them with their audience. It is this experience which better drives the commercial discussions he entertains with clients.
