Justine Piechatzek joins as GM in Germany and Roxane Philippe joins as Director in France. 

Red Havas Health, the health-focused PR micro-network launched earlier this year as part of the Red Havas Group and powered by Havas Health & You, has announced two new global leadership appointments. Justine Piechatzek joins as General Manager in Germany and Roxane Philippe joins as Director in France. This announcement follows last week’s news of Red Havas’s addition of Red Havas Spain, Germany, China, France, and Italy.

Justine Piechatzek becomes General Manager for Red Havas Health Germany. A trusted leader in health communications, Justine most recently served as Group Head at MCG Medical Consulting Group. She previously held roles at Ketchum Pleon and Ogilvy Healthworld. Justine will report locally to Dirk Poschenrieder, Managing Director of Havas Life Dusseldorf, as the group continues to bring its PR and advertising services closer together.

Roxane Philippe will serve as Director of Red Havas Health France. She brings a breadth of agency leadership experience, having worked at By Agency Communication, Hill + Knowlton and Elan Edelman. She will report locally to Loris Repellin, CEO Havas Health & You France, and Julien Carette, CEO Havas Paris. In her new role, Roxane will be responsible for developing and growing the health PR offer with the group’s current group clients, as well as new business, in addition to working with the global Red Havas Health teams.

In making this announcement, Red Havas Global CEO James Wright said, “Germany and France are important strategic markets for us as we build out our global health capabilities beyond our established markets. We now have over 160 health specialists around the world working with our clients to communicate the human stories behind the science, which has never been more important than it is today. We are delighted to have Justine and Roxane join the team as the Red Havas Health brand continues to gain quick momentum following our launch in March this year.”

John Hackney, CEO Europe of Havas Health & You added, “This is an important strategic addition to our HH&Y competence within Europe. Our clients require deeper and more meaningful connectivity with their audiences. The Red Havas Health network and service offer is a key part of delivering this, alongside our other established health PR agencies Havas Just and Havas SO.”

As demand for health communications continues to grow, the additions of France and Germany build on the Red Havas Health network across the U.S, U.K, the Middle East, Australia, Singapore, Vietnam, the Philippines, Spain, China, and Italy. Backed by the Havas Health & You network, the Red Havas Health brand is at the forefront of redefining health communications with its unique Merged Media approach that integrates earned, social and experiential capabilities with content at the heart.  The agency plans on further expansion throughout 2021-2022 and will partner with the other existing PR assets across the Havas Group where needed to address client needs.
