Highland Marketing welcomes another industry advisor

His time engaged on phase 1 to 3 projects ranging from cosmetic product development to new applications for existing products in existing markets, will support Highland Marketing at a time of convergence of different healthcare environments i.e. Parma, life sciences and clinical research. Dr Mathewson is currently a Scottish council member for the Royal Collage of General Practitioners.

Commenting on his appointment, Dr Mathewson said: “I’ve always been keen to share my healthcare experience wherever I can, so this was the perfect opportunity for me. I’m looking forward to working with Highland Marketing, and, in turn, supporting organisations looking to improve the quality of healthcare, not just domestically but internationally.”

Mark Venables, Highland Marketing CEO added: “I was keen to get Kerry on board our expanding advisory team, especially given his impressive experience in GP practice and clinical research. This addition gives us more industry intelligence at our disposal, ensuring our carefully-researched tailored marketing communications programs are second-to-none for our clients.”
