International partnership working is driving significant growth at healthcare marketing communication specialists Onyx Health, with the team growing by more than a third and doubling its fee income despite the pandemic.

Through the agency's partnership with US-based agency Jeff Winton Associates, Onyx Health is helping their US clients to break into the European market.

To support the company's continued expansion, Onyx Health has made six new appointments to its rapidly expanding team since the last lockdown. Increasing its staff by over a third, the Newcastle-based company now has 23 employees.

The new additions to the team at Onyx Health include Senior Designer Anabel Dakin, Business and Finance Manager Beth Kerrigan, Senior Marketing Communications Project Manager Suman Kaur and Marketing Communications Project Managers Sophie Ferguson, Adrian Flanagan and Jake Dickens.

Annabel brings a wealth of creative design experience to the team, having previously worked for household names such as NHS England. Beth is a qualified accountant with extensive finance experience, and Suman is a marketing expert who previously worked for North East agency Cool Blue. Sophie is a former Brand Manager for a pharmaceutical company, Adrian provided communications for the NHS, and Jake worked for international battery company Energizer.

Onyx Health's new team members will help the agency offer a wider range of communication expertise to support its growing roster of clients.  

Onyx Health's Executive Director, Trevor Pill, said: "This has been a historic year for Onyx Health. We've more than doubled our fee incomes and set up a new creative studio overlooking the iconic Tyne Bridge. We've continued to grow as an agency throughout the COVID-19 crisis, which is a testament to our talented team members' hard work and dedication.

"Our new appointments will add greater depth and knowledge to the great work we do. Our specialist knowledge is key to driving our commercial success, and our new team members will play a pivotal role in making this happen. We've got ambitious plans for the coming year, so watch this space."
