NEW YORK — Former GCI Health CEO Wendy Lund is returning to agency life as WPP’s chief client officer for health and wellness less than two years after moving to an in-house role.
In her new role, Lund will oversee WPP’s work supporting health and wellness clients. She will report to WPP chief client officer Lindsay Pattison.
Lund spent most of the last two years leading communications for Merck spinoff Organon, which is dedicated to advancing women’s health.
Lund started at Organon in January 2021 after spending a decade at the helm of GCI Health, a WPP agency.
Under Lund’s watch, GCI Health grew from 30 people to more than 300 people globally, spread across 16 offices, including a fast-growing European operation and an Asian footprint.
Kristin Cahill, who was GCI’s North America president under Lund, succeeded her as global CEO. As of 2020, GCI was among the world’s 30 largest PR firms with $127 million in annual revenue.
