SAN FRANCISCO — Visa’s head of global PR Ryan Donovan is departing the company for electronic health records startup Practice Fusion.

Donovan is taking the VP of corporate communications post at Practice Fusion in San Francisco, reporting to CEO/founder Ryan Howard.

“It’s a big role with a company that has been on a huge growth tear since its founding,” Donovan said in an email.

Donovan’s last day at Visa is December 20. His departure comes amid a series of changes at Visa as the company scaled back its work with agency partners.

Donovan’s 20-year career in Silicon Valley has included stints at SanDisk and Hewlett-Packard.
