Elevate Gets Even Sharper Adds Scott Harper
Senior Talent Harper To Lead Client Engagement and Delivery
Elevate, the strategic and promotional marketing agency that serves healthcare challenger brands, announced today that healthcare agency veteran Scott Harper has been added as Vice President, Client Engagement & Delivery.
Harper has an impressive background in healthcare marketing, having held senior positions in both Account Management and Client Operations with a number of respected healthcare agencies (CDM, GSW, & Dudnyk). He joins Elevate in a newly created role of VP, Client Engagement & Delivery, which includes servicing the current rapidly expanding book of Elevate business, on-boarding new clients, and instilling rigor to organizational processes for the growing agency.
Elevate co-founders Frank X. Powers and Lorna Weir had both worked with Harper previously and have always admired his impressive range of abilities.
“Scott is a steadying force—his client relationships and appreciation for agency process is a perfect fit for Elevate as we scale the organization. He is a truly special talent with the ability to engage in meaningful client relationships, mentor staff, and leverage process and organizational operations to deliver on behalf of those clients and staff,” says Powers. “He successfully navigates and manages a number of disciplines and we are quite lucky to have him join our growing team. We look forward to Scott’s positive impact on clients, as well as the additional support and mentorship he can provide for the entire staff.”
Harper earned his B.S. in marketing from the Martin J. Whitman School of Management at Syracuse, and then has gone on to have a successful 18 year career in healthcare advertising. His marketing background includes multiple disease states, particularly rare disease, gastroenterology, ophthalmology, cardiology, as well as experience in Managed Markets promotion. As the latest senior industry leader to join the burgeoning agency, Scott is helping Elevate continue to disrupt the status quo of the agency model—and change the definition of what client engagement & delivery in the agency world looks like.
